Since there’s no real page for JBLite yet: JBLite is a library of code for converting Jim Breen’s dictionary files into one or more SQLite 3 databases. It is intended to support J-Ben 2, but its BSD license allows anyone to use it. (Note: the generated data, of course, still falls under the original license of JMdict.)
Anyway, I’ve finished creating a converter for JMdict. The code is available from http://repo.or.cz/w/jblite.git.
python -m jblite.jmdict <output_file> JMdict.gz should allow anyone with Python 2.5+ to convert current versions of JMdict to SQLite 3. This has been tested on Windows 7, and I expect no problems with Linux.
Eventually the code is intended to provide a Python interace to the database as well, something which could be used inside other applications (such as J-Ben 2). This does not yet exist. So, if anyone wants to use this, here’s the schema of the database. If there are errors, let me know.
If you have any questions, please check jmdict_db_schema.rst in the git repository. It gives a few design details.
