Description Michael Catanzaro 2015-01-19 13:00:32 PST
We either need to install missing spell checking dictionaries (either automatically or via new API), or else provide API for applications to figure out what they need to install for spell checking to work. Carlos requested the later.

mrobinson:  So I guess the issue with the API is this:
mrobinson:  The API allows us to get the list without making implementation details assumptions, but the installation requires making the same assumptions.

I'd really like to pair it with a function to install the dictionaries, something like:

void
webkit_web_context_install_spell_checking_dictionaries (WebKitWebContext*, char** dictionaries, GCancellable*, GAsyncReadyCallback, gpointer)

gboolean
webkit_web_context_install_spell_checking_dictionaries_finish(WebKitWebContext*, GAsyncResult*, GError**)
