LanguageTool for Safari?

Hi!

There is any plan to develop LanguageTool for Safari?
The absence of the LT Safari plugin is the only reason I’m using Chrome.

18% of people in the world use Safari (source: https://gs.statcounter.com/).

UPDATE by admin: the Safari add-on is now available at https://apps.apple.com/app/languagetool-for-safari/id1534275760

I would love to see an extension for safari. Pretty sad that I have to use a different browser when writing something important.

Apple will support WebExtension API in next version on Safari.
“And now, Xcode 12 supports the popular WebExtension API and includes a porting tool to make it easy to bring your extensions to Safari.” - source: https://developer.apple.com/safari/extensions/

There is any chance to port Chrome extension to Safari?

LanguageTools is only reason why I’m still use the Chrome :frowning:

We’re re-considering support for Safari now because of this.

I would love to test that too.

One more for testing.
I tried to compile the plugin in Xcode but it does not allow e to login to use the paid version.
But it seemed to work.

Any news @dnaber? It would be great to start new year with new browser with LanguageTool add-on :slight_smile:

Maybe someone has the self compile version made in xcode and share them here?

Our browser add-on is now also available for Safari at https://apps.apple.com/app/languagetool-for-safari/id1534275760. It’s the first release, so please post feedback if you find any issues.

Great! :slight_smile:
Everything works fine except using my local languagetool server on docker (URL: http://localhost:8010/v2) :frowning:

Safari add-on says that can’t connect when Chrome in other window works fine with same settings.

BTW. You can also add info about other supported languages in App Store (now, there is only English and German).

Could you post the command you use to start your local server?
