I've release Eldamo 0.5.0.

In terms of content, this release is not that major. However, this is the first release of Eldamo that includes "source code", that is the code for the system I use to generate Eldamo rather than just the site itself. The build and run process is discussed in the Readme for the github project:

I have no idea what, if any, interest there is in the technology used to create Eldamo, but if folks want to ask me questions beyond what I have posted as Github, I will be happy to answer them.

As for content updates:

1) I continue to work on PE22. About half-way now.

2) I did another pass at cleaning up Quenya words. They are now at a similar level of completeness to the Sindarin words.

3) I finally finished the Noldorin name analysis. I kept getting distracted by other things.

Hi Paul!  I recently discovered Eldamo and it is awesome.

I have hooked it up to my tengwar transcriber ( Please let me know if you're OK with the citation (I include a pointer to or if you'd like anything different.

I have also built a service API based on Eldamo: will return an array of entries matching "word" as a JSON data structure.

+Arno Gourdol I am pleased to see what you did with the Eldamo data, and glad you found it useful. The license was specifically intended to allow that sort of thing.

The link to the Eldamo site is definitely sufficient attribution. And the search feature in your transcriber is nicely done.
