Golang : Get Hokkien(福建话)/Min-nan(閩南語) Pronounciations



Tags : golang hokkien hoklo min-nan education language

I built this tool for my own use and use it to teach my kids Hokkien a.k.a Min-nan language. At the same time, I also want to learn how to write the corresponding Hanzi(漢字) as it sounds in Hokkien. If you're learning Hokkien. I hope that this simple tool can be useful to you as a teaching tool.

Basically, it will convert the Hanzi input and change it to Traditional Chinese fonts and provide a link to https://www.moedict.tw/ together with the individual Hanzi.

If you don't know Hokkien, then this video should explain what this tutorial trying to do:

Alright, here we go!


 package main

 import (
  "fmt"
  "html/template"
  "log"
  "math/rand"
  "net/http"

  "unicode"

  "github.com/siongui/gojianfan"
 )


 const hanziInputPage = `<html><body>


  <form method="post" action="/hokkienminnan">
  <p><h1>Hokkien(福建话)/Min-nan(閩南語) Pronounciations</h2></p>
