Bootstrap list of curated dictionaries


(Mozilla Localizations :: Other, enhancement)

Not set

(Reporter: flod, Assigned: flod)



We want to create a list of dictionaries to download when adding a language pack to Firefox.

I've created a series of scripts that extract

a) Full list of dictionaries, including some stats. 

We have 135 dictionaries on AMO, 37 are for locales that don't ship in Firefox and therefore not relevant for this work.

Note: at least two of them fail to install (de, oc).

b) A curated list of dictionaries, including GUID, name, URL, target locale.

c) A minimal list of dictionary GUIDs generated from b

Code is hosted at

HTML output is available at
Tested for lv, it looks all right.
All looking good for "ka".

So far the only problem is with 'az', where the preferred dictionary doesn't show up in the API. Need to wait for an update to see if that solves the problem
The dictionary selected for Czech ( is the correct one. In case there is any technical problem discovered with that one, it's under our community control.
gd is fine, it's the most comprehensive one and we keep it updated
All looks good for da
The selected extension for pt-PT is ok.

I'm a bit late but for pt-BR it should be

(It is the same dictionary shipped with Firefox)

Can you file a follow up bug and assign it to me? We still need to figure out the process to update this list, and it will be useful to focus the discussion there.
