Welcome to BYOD

What is B.Y.O.D.

BYOD, for Build Your Own Dictionary, is a site that builds compressed wordlists for CrossWords. You upload lists of words in one of the supported languages, configure and compress, and can then download a .xwd file that can be used in the app.


This site uses cookies to do things like be able to find your files when you come back later (from the same browser.) No personal information is harvested or in any way leaves the site. You can try disabling cookies in your browser, but this site probably won't work without them. Caveat emptor.

This site was completly rewritten (using Flask) in October 2020 and April 2022. There will be bugs. Please let me know! I'm excited that you're using it and am motiviated to make it work.
