Description

Use thesaurus.com to look up synonyms and, if available, antonyms.

Moreover, it comes with an executable called tcom, which can be used to start a search from the shell. The output is either plain-text (by default) or JSON.

Installation

$ npm install -g thesaurus-com

Or install it into the current directory, so you can play around with it:

$ npm install --save thesaurus-com

(The executable can then be found at ./node_modules/.bin/tcom.)

Usage

var tcom = require('thesaurus-com');

console.log(tcom.search('never'));

// { synonyms:
//   [ 'at no time',
//     'don\'t hold your breath',
//     'forget it',
//     'nevermore',
//     'no way',
//     'not at all',
//     'not ever',
//     'not in any way',
//     'not in the least',
//     'not on your life',
//     'not under any condition' ],
//  antonyms: [ 'always', 'forever' ] }
