Make Wiktionary definitions available via the dict protocol

The dict protocol (RFC 2229) is a widely used protocol for looking up definitions over the Internet. We'd like to make Wiktionary definitions available for users. Doing that using the dict protocol would help drive the use and usefulness of Wiktionary, as well.

Possible users:

Tablet readers often have dictionary lookup included.
Students writing papers would have access to a large corpus of words.
Mobile applications for Wiktionary would be less tied to MediaWiki itself.

Mentor: Yurik Astrakhan


Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement
