Dictionary.com Nuget Package

A light-weight .NET library for accessing word definitions from Dictionary.com.

Installing

The package is available to install from nuget here. To install via the .NET command line interface:

dotnet add package DictionaryDotcom

Retrieving a definition

DictionaryService service = new DictionaryService();
DefinitionSet ds = await service.DefineAsync("departmentalize");
foreach (Definition def in ds.Definitions)
{
    Console.WriteLine(def.Class.ToString() + " - " + def.Description);
    Console.WriteLine("\t" + "Example: " + def.Example);
    Console.WriteLine();
}

You can also set a DictionaryBook to be used as storage for all retrieved definitions. After doing this, next time you request the same word twice from the DictionaryService class, the definition will be pulled from a saved copy of response from the initial request.

Example:

DictionaryService service = new DictionaryService();
DictionaryBook db = new DictionaryBook();
service.SetStorage(db);
DefinitionSet ds = await service.DefineAsync("departmentalize");
foreach (Definition def in ds.Definitions)
{
    Console.WriteLine(def.Class.ToString() + " - " + def.Description);
    Console.WriteLine("\t" + "Example: " + def.Example);
    Console.WriteLine();
}
Console.WriteLine(JsonConvert.SerializeObject(ds));
