Shortcut to search any highlighted word in Japan Dict and Jisho (Mac)


#1

I made a shortcut to search any highlighted word in Japan Dict. I based it on one I got for Jisho, and experimented to get it to work. Basically it’s a simple Automator script you save in Services, and make a shortcut for that. The Automator script is just a Run Shell Script with the following commands

open “https://www.japandict.com/?s=${@}

and another for Jisho

open “http://www.jisho.org/search/${@}

any questions?

I was curious cause I’d never heard of “Japandict” but it looks like it is also another EDICT based dictionary, so you shouldn’t get different results between the two.

dunno, but I like it. It’s nicely laid out, easy to find stuff.
