Description fujiwara 2013-09-24 07:37:47 UTC
Now ibus-cloud-pinyin is available:


Actually I'm not sure if the cloud feature is useful for Chinese users so it's up to you to integrate the feature or will not fix.

Originally someone pointed out that ibus missed that feature.
Maybe it's an idea to release ibus-cloud-pinyin in Fedora while it provides sogou only and fcitx provides sogou, ime.qq.com, google, baidu.

I was also interested in the cloud for ja but it seems the protocol is closed in google.

Asked ibus-cloud-pinyin upstream to release a tarball.


Comment 2 Peng Wu 2013-09-26 08:01:58 UTC
Today I tried to package ibus-cloud-pinyin, but got some vala errors.

After checking the commit log, it seems the upstream stop code activity for two years.

Here are rpm spec and shell scripts when I am trying to package it, but failed.

Comment 3 Peng Wu 2013-09-26 08:11:19 UTC
Maybe I can implement cloud input support in ibus-libpinyin.

But I have the following two concerns:
1. security, all user input will be sent to third-party websites;
2. dunno whether the websites allow us to use their services,
   I think their services are close-sourced;
