Big Huge Thesaurus - SYN working for anybody?

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to the forums,


When making a request or a bug report pertaining to a specific workflow, please do not open a new thread to discuss your issue.

Making a new thread, while it seems like it’ll give your problem visibility, will only fragment the discussion and make it less likely the author and users of the workflow (the people that can actually help) will see it. Instead, search for the official post of the workflow and ask your question there.

Also, please always start by reading the Reporting Problems with Workflows thread, and the others it links to.


In this case, it’s absolutely unclear what workflow you’re talking about, even.

Hey Vitor,


Thanks for the note. I did search for both SYN and Big Huge Thesaurus and came up empty. Were you able to find something that way? 


I also tried joining the packal.org page to message the creator directly but their sign in procedure failed (and I emailed their support). 


AND (I don't believe it's not obvious) the workflow in packal.org is titled Big Huge Thesaurus and uses the shortcut SYN

Packal is in maintenance mode, meaning you shouldn’t expect many (or any) fixes to the website itself.

The github page for the workflow (which might be the best channel to contact the developer) says it was updated two days ago, so it seems maintained. You might be missing one of their required steps, like getting an API key or installing Node.

If it’s all the same to you, you might try SynAnt instead (disclaimer: I wrote it). I use it regularly so I know it works, and I’ll be able to better help you with something I’ve wrote. It also has fewer dependencies and more options (antonyms), while using the same API.
