Dictionary with alternative forms of words?

#1
I'm doing a utility similar to epwing2anki, but if the words list has for example 見つける, it won't be found inside the EPWING dictionary, because it has the word as "見付ける". I need a dictionary or something where a word is given in all its common used forms, so that if my utility find zero results for 見つける, it will check the alternative spellings, and search for them instead.
Does something like this exist?

PS: sorry, I wanted to post it in "learning resources" but I posted it in off-topic instead Sad

JMDICT/EDICT is a good resource for this. You can get a large XML file of all the variations in kanji and kana usage.
I wrote a Go library for this (used in Yomichan-Import), it could be a good starting point:
