English grammar checker


#1

Hey,

I am interested in a functionality similar to Grammarly for Atom. I have seen the linter-write-good, but the default functionalities that write-good has are not as powerful as Grammarly (or other similar grammar check feature).


#2

Do you know of any open-source programs similar enough to Grammarly?


#3

Any hope to embed Grammarly into Atom? That would be awesome!
The integration oF Grammarly into web browsers makes it an invaluable tool. Having it in Atom would make Atom a primary tool for authoring.


#4

Do you know if the source code of Grammarly is available anywhere?

Interesting, languagetool has a free API. There are already two packages for atom that implement it:

I tested the functionality of languagetools via atom and unfortunately it doesn’t come near as close to grammarly, in my opinion. For instance, prepositions check weren’t done correctly:

I am on the bike
I am at the bike
I am in the bike.

In the example above nothing is highlighted.

Hi, Has any progress been made for this issue? I wished to implement the Grammarly plugin to my Atom Editor too.

Do you know if the source code of Grammarly is available anywhere?

Searched for grammarly APIs but found nine, instead how about implementing this https://textgears.com/api/

That would be possible.
