Spellchecking with qutebrowser


I really wanted to have spellchecking with qutebrowser. Yesterday I finally realized that in fact there is spellchecking for qutebrowser. But not only that. Its really easy and done with two commands!


1. Install the wordbook that you want

/usr/share/qutebrowser/scripts/dictcli.py install de-DE

2. Add the spellchecking within qutebrowser

:set spellcheck.languages ["de-DE"]

You can also use more than one language for spellchecking

:set spellcheck.languages ["en-US","de-DE"]

But be aware that you have to install the wordlist before like in step one!

You can choose from the following languages:
