Hi SignWriting List,

Someone asked me if SignPuddle 3 would support the data available from SignPuddle 2, specifically SignPuddle Markup Language (SPML).  The answer is no, not yet.  It would require an import function and an export function.  Neither should be that difficult.

Internally, SignPuddle 3 uses either an SQLite database, JSON data, or a plain text file with <tab> separated values. Signs are written with SignWriting in Unicode (SWU) characters to store the data.

To fully support SPML, read in the data and write out XML with Formal SignWriting in ASCII (FSW) characters.

To get the ASL public dictionary, use can any of the following:
* https://signpuddle.com/server/dictionary/ase-US-dictionary-public.json
* https://signpuddle.com/server/dictionary/ase-US-dictionary-public.txt
* https://signpuddle.com/server/dictionary/ase-US-dictionary-public.db

------------------------------------------------------

SignPuddle 3 comes with a vast collection of documentation. 
* https://signpuddle.com/client/doc/


The document is divided up into several groups.  Each group is available in self contained pages.  These pages are available in the group header.  Open the pages in a browser or download as needed.




In the dictionary group, the API Dictionary link goes to a live page that will actively communication with a SignPuddle 3 server.  By default it points to the SignPuddle.com server.
* https://signpuddle.com/client/api/dictionary.html



-------------------
The Dictionary Data
-------------------
To learn about the dictionary type, use the "API Dictionary" page.  The page is interactive and makes live calls to the server when you push the GET, POST, PUT, or DELETE buttons.
* https://signpuddle.com/client/api/dictionary.html




This resource can be used to access the dictionary data.  It defaults to plain text, but it also takes an additional extension of ".txt", ".json", or ".db".  I will add this to the documentation shortly.

So to get the ASL public dictionary, use any of the following:
* https://signpuddle.com/server/dictionary/ase-US-dictionary-public.json
* https://signpuddle.com/server/dictionary/ase-US-dictionary-public.txt
* https://signpuddle.com/server/dictionary/ase-US-dictionary-public.db

Regards,
-Steve
