SILPA is an acronym of Swathanthra(Mukth, Free as in Freedom) Indian Language Processing Applications. Its a web framework written using Flask micro framework for hosting various Indian language computing algorithms written in python. It currently provides JSONRPC support which is also used by web framework itself to input data and fetch result.

The modules work as standalone python packages which will serve their purpose and also they plug into the silpa-flask webframewok so that they can be accessed as web services also, or become just another webapp like the dictionary module.
