Looking for an open source tool to check grammar of a text file via command line. Do you guys have any recommendations?
@przemo Thanks. I did look at that. It checks spelling for now. Basic spell check is available in my markdown app. I need to fix my grammar before I post it online.
Err does running emacs in a terminal count?
@Alonealastalovedalongthe Honestly, I was intimidated by Emacs. I am not sure. All I want is to run my blog posts through a grammar check before posting.
Yah.. it was kind of an absurd answer lol, that would be like buying and learning how to operate a rocket ship just to use the toaster in it.
You can probably just find a regular toaster lol
It has the online app there but you can download an offline java version (scroll down). The offline one does not send your data to a server.
Then you can either run it with a stand-alone GUI or from the command line.
And BTW you can also use it within Emacs 😄 or LibreOffice.
Sorry, my viewing of the thread doesn't show that you got any other suggestions, or I wouldn't have replied. That's the problem with Mastodon, only seeing parts of threads.
@leadore Its all good. At least that confirms it is widely recommended.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
