Spellchecker extension improved, has a new home

The JupyterLab spellchecker extension received a few improvements recently, including:

  • alternative themes for highlighting misspelt words (wavy underline, dotted underline),
  • better compatibility with alternative frontends (statusbar and command palette no longer required)
  • language can be now changed from the command palette
  • bug fixes specific to issues in German dictionary
  • better performance when changing language
  • you can install it with pip for JupyterLab 3.0 (Node.js is no longer required :tada:)

The extension repository was moved to the new GitHub organisation: GitHub - jupyterlab-contrib/spellchecker: Spellchecker for JupyterLab notebook markdown cells and file editor.
