As we are talking about a local web server on a hopefully private PC in a private network, the difference between "chmod 777" (world writable) and "chmod 775" (world readable & executable) is not so important.

But you are right.

        sudo chmod -R 775 lwt

would be more correct.


Pivate pc in a private network ? In most cases we need the internet to reach the dictionaries and we will use our private computer to access internet for other activities.

Just a heads up: OS X Yosemite users must update MAMP to the latest version, as version 3.0.5 will not work anymore.

By the way, the latest big feature (related words) is very useful, thanks for that.

How do you rate words?

At the moment, I mark words I know passively as 'well known' because it makes it easier
to read when just the trickier ones are coloured. Then my idea was to sort all the words I
don't know (marked as 1) after frequency and then learn them one by one.

However, there are words I understand passively but probably wouldn't be able to come
up with when writing so I guess using the 1-5 rating makes sense. The question is how
you use it. The same goes for moving them from 2 to 3, etc. Any rules?

I created a file so you can import texts from supported sites (such as Langsam
gesprochene Nachrichten) with a simple click. If you have LWT installed at
http://lwt.allalla.com and save the file as import.php you can import a text simply by
adding http://lwt.allalla.com/import.php?url= in front of your URL.

http://www.dw.de/13112014-langsam-gesprochene-nachrichten/a- 18059979

Would become:

http://lwt.allalla.com/import.php?url=http://www.dw.de/13112 014-langsam-
gesprochene-
nachrichten/a-18059979

The script will automatically fetch the title & text from DW and import it to LWT.

I'm using the software TextExpander so I can write ;import and it magically transforms
into http://lwt.allalla.com/import.php?url=. You can also create a bookmarklet if you're
more comfortable with that.

http://www.fluentin3months.com/forum/resources-2/langsam-ges prochene-nachrichten-
in-itunes-with-rss/#p26885

At the moment the script supports DW and SlowGerman but I'm open for suggestions.
I've considered adding some kind of lyrics site but I don't know which.

Link to the script: http://pastebin.com/2Hz2FtZs

Thanks.

In SlowGerman it shouldn't import the text after "Episode hier herunterladen".

Also it would be good the text gets tagged as "Slow German", "DW", etc.

And if the mp3 could be automatically downloaded and linked to the text! (maybe that is asking too much)

Thanks. I've updated the script with a fix for SlowGerman although it's a problem that
they don't keep to one standard. The current fix covers the five versions I could find but I
didn't check all 90 episodes.

I also added a simple function to fetch and include the last mp3-file linked on the website.
It worked on the two pages i tested but it's not really a priority since I'm using iTunes.

Unfortunately I haven't figured out how the tags functions work. I could do a hack but
there's always the risk that the system gets messed up when you don't rely on standard
functions that are in place to clean up the DB when you delete something.

There's now a new version on github, since the original hasn't been updated for some time.
