Dixit is a cross-platform application for consulting off-line various Romanian definitions dictionaries. It features a browser-like interface, with cross-references between definitions, and the capability of adding new definitions from a server.
The digital definitions are provided by the DEX online project (coordinated by Cătălin Frâncu). The most important source is The Definitions Dictionary of the Romanian Language (DEX 1998). The following Romanian dictionaries are also complete, thanks to the Romanian company Siveco, and Litera International and Saeculum Publishing Houses: Thesaurus (2002), Antonyms (2002), Orthographic Dictionary (2002), The New Definitions Dictionary of the Romanian Language (2002), The Big Dictionary of Neologisms (2000).
GNU/Linux: 14.2.5 (28-02-2014)
Windows 8/7/Vista/XP: 11.11.4 (28-05-2013)
On April 4, 2012, dexonline.ro had withdrawn the PHP scripts that exported the definitions for the use of all dictionary applications. Therefore Dixit will not be able to update its own definitions, as the new PHP exporting script is not compatible with its present noSQL database.
