This is a small tool that I have created to keep safe all those words/expressions that I come across when I'm learning a new language. Hopefully, it will help you too.
Some things it allows you to do are:
- Create as many lists as you want.
- Save as many words or expressions as you want.
- Delete lists, words or expressions and definitions.
- And some other things and many others that are missing but I will try to add as soon as possible.
my-own-words also cares about you and:
- It won't duplicate your lists.
- Will not duplicate your words or expressions.
- It won't duplicate your word definitions.
npm install -g my-own-words
yarn global add my-own-words
Attention: The lists are created in a directory within your home directory with a .json format and for the moment all words and their definitions are sorted alphabetically by default.
my-own-words -l 'italian' -w 'Ciao' -d 'Hi'
As you can see, the add command receives three parameters:
--list: name of the list where you want to add a new word. If the list does not exist, it is created.
--word: word or expression you want to add.
--definition: definition of the word or expression you want to add.
To add a new definition to a word simply add the word with the new definition again.
If the list command does not receive any parameters, it prints a list of available lists in the console.
If you want to list the words or expressions in a list you must include the parameter
--list with the list name (Just as described above, in the add command).
my-own-words remove -l 'italian' -w 'Ciao' -d 'Hi'
Depending on the parameters the command receives, it will do the following:
- If it receive only the name of a list ( with
--list), it will completely delete this list if it exists.
- If it receive a word (should therefore also receive the name of a list), it will delete that word or expressions and its definitions.
- If it receive a definition (need to receive the other two parameters listed above), it will remove that definition from the selected word or expression.
my-own-words new -l 'spanish'
Creates a new list with the specified name (with
my-own-words print -l 'italian'
Creates a Markdown file from the specified list (
--list) in the same directory as the other lists.
In the future I'll add more format options
Due to Yargs, all commands have
