The SpellingApi extension adds an API module for checking the spelling of texts. It uses the PHP pspell library, so it must be installed on the server.

The current version is just a simple proof of concept.

Download[edit | edit source]

The extension can be retrieved directly from Git [?]:

  • Browse code
  • Some extensions have tags for stable releases.
  • Each branch is associated with a past MediaWiki release. There is also a "master" branch containing the latest alpha version (might require an alpha version of MediaWiki).

Extract the snapshot and place it in the extensions/SpellingApi/ directory of your MediaWiki installation.

If you are familiar with git and have shell access to your server, you can also obtain the extension as follows:

cd extensions/
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/SpellingApi.git

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called SpellingApi in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/SpellingApi/SpellingApi.php";
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
