Detailed Description

User requirements:

  • More Intelligent Pinyin Input Method
    • Some users get used to some intelligent pinyin imes, which can input a whole sentence by only choosing zero, one or two candidates, the pinyin ime will figure out the actual sentence the user wants.

Benefit to Fedora

  • This will make the Fedora pinyin input method more convenient and intelligent to use, also speed up the user input when using pinyin.
  • Currently ibus-pinyin needs more user interactions to input a sentence.


  • Use libpinyin as a back end of ibus-pinyin.
  • Make ibus-pinyin more easier and intelligent to input Chinese sentences.
