Question StarDict port for Kindle 3?

Unfortunately, the Kindle's dictionary support is limited. For example, it can display Russian ebooks, but you cannot look up words in them.
It would be great if someone could port the free StarDict dictionary to the Kindle.
StarDict support is integrated in some FBReader versions (but not fbKindle) and Duokan, but the Duokan developers didn't implement the word selection lookup algorithm correctly, because it only works with English and Chinese.

Since there are so many talented Kindle programmers in this forum. I'd really appreciate it, if someone would create a StarDict port. IHMO, there are a couple of good reasons for doing this:
  • The StarDict code is GNU GPL v3 licensed and Linux ports exist
  • Free StarDict dictionaries are widely available on the Internet and can be easily created from scratch
  • Unlike Kindle, StarDict supports pretty much any language, including Russian, RTL languages and CJK, and Amazon is not likely to implement anything beyond the usual EFIGS support
Alternatively, I'd appreciate pointers on how to create a lookup dictionary feature myself using Python, Perl or other other scripting languages. (Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with C, Linux and the Kindle framework.)

When requesting specific, custom, software you will often get better results if you offer money in exchange for the work.
Most developers respond well to $$$$

Not necessarily. For example, I have given custom scripts away without asking for money.
I guess not everybody has your keen business sense...

GoldenDict is being ported on K3 and PW here: http://www.the-ebook.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=25800

To summarize (if you don't know Russian ): some progress was made (https://github.com/VVSiz/Goldendict-Kindle), but end-user result isn't available yet.

so today I had a look at stardict. downloaded the i386 version to my linux box.

What am I missing? it doesn't seem to work? hardly very encouraging to look at a port...

If the full StarDict version didn't work for you, could you please also check out he command line version sdcv, which appears to be a Linux only version that'll probably have fewer dependencies and a smaller footprint.

(Free StarDict dicionaries for testing can be found here.)

Re sdcv:

[ 12%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/sdcv.dir/src/sdcv.cpp.o
cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-std=c++11’

so we fix it up to be...

Quote:
Try -std=c++0x instead.

Availability of C++11 features is for versions >= 4.3 only.
even though I am using 4.6.3?

This would then give us:

/usr/local/src/sdcv/src/lib/mapfile.hpp:26:18: sorry, unimplemented: non-static data member initializers

AFAIK I would have to use clang to fix that... I think...
So the compilation of the command line version will have to fall to someone more comfortable with ninjaing CMAKES - @Niluje... any takers?

I tried.

Will check it out (assuming a K3 as the target, or can I save myself some eventual trouble and jump to K4/K5?)
