dictionary: ability to script custom filters

Recommended Posts

The native and Script Filter implementations of the dictionary module may return a multitude of results which can be overbearing, specially considering that it can return results for words that are lexicographically similar but are not exact. It also doesn't support modifiers such as custom largetype or Quick Look. Finally, it shows the definition in an unfortunate manner such that the word meta can consume a large portion of the limited real estate, leaving marginal room for the actual definition itself.




The ability to plug in a custom Script Filter to further refine the list of results would greatly appreciated. It would bring about the possibility of actions such as refining by returned word, restructuring the subtitle to omit or reorder various components such as the syllables or pronunciation keys, or doing any of the normal things a Script Filter can. This would also mitigate all the limitations enumerated at the start of this post.
