==Introduction==
This page is under development. As such it may not be helpful until it is near completion. For that reason, please don't link it on another page until then. To become complete it needs fair and balanced™ coverage of the SWORD programs.
+
This page needs to be maintained to give fair coverage of the SWORD front-end programs.
  
 
Do feel free to edit this page to make it more complete and better organized.

The purpose of this page is to help an end user decide which SWORD program is the best for them. The first consideration is which programs are available for the user. This can be found at [http://www.crosswire.org CrossWire's home page]. Once the user has narrowed down which programs are available, the following can be used to focus on the best program.

As this page is oriented to program features, it does not distinguish whether the underlying engine is SWORD or JSword.
For the most part all the SWORD programs have the same features.

Some applications have a different CrossWire development code name than the public name.
 +
 
 +
==Features Common to All SWORD Front-end Applications==

==== Image Module Support ====
!width="9%"|Operating Systems
+
SWORD proper does not really "support" any particular image formats. The engine delivers text on demand to the applications, some of which incidentally contains references to image content. The engine itself isn't really aware that images are part of the deal, other than that some of the filters happen to scribble the right target markup, which is agnostic to what image format is referenced.

==== Module Information ====
 +
Some front-ends can display the complete information from the module's [[DevTools:conf Files|conf file]]. Others can display hardly anything at all of this information. Please use this section to record what each program can display for module information, and how this is accessed.
 +
 +
Please state whether the front-end can display the '''ShortPromo''' link, if present in the module conf file. Except for locked modules, this is the only configuration item that allows HTML.

Introduction

This page needs to be maintained to give fair coverage of the SWORD front-end programs.

Do feel free to edit this page to make it more complete and better organized.

The purpose of this page is to help an end user decide which SWORD front-end program is the best for them. The first consideration is which programs are available for the user. This can be found at CrossWire's home page. Once the user has narrowed down which programs are available, the following can be used to focus on the best program.

It is recommended that each user try all the available programs. It is likely that one will resonate with the user and work best for that user.

As this page is oriented to program features, it does not distinguish whether the underlying engine is SWORD or JSword.

Some applications have a different CrossWire development code name than the public name.

Features Common to All SWORD Front-end Applications

Most SWORD Front-end programs have these features:

  • Uses Unicode (though some front-ends don't yet support 5.0 or later)
  • Released under an open source license
  • Powerful search syntax - wildcard, regex and often also clucene indexed searches (fuzzy and proximity searches + searches for Strong's, stemming etc) within preset and customized scopes.
  • Strong's, morphological info, cross references and footnotes
  • All front-ends listed below are undergoing more or less active development.
  • Verse and block layout
  • Image support in all types of modules
  • Localization - all front-ends are designed to be readily translatable. Many are translated in various languages.

Side-by-Side Comparison of Notable SWORD Front-end Applications

This is a work in progress. It may not be 100% accurate. As front-ends are further developed, some items may become out of date.
Please help to keep this page useful by editing it to the best of your knowledge
.

Legends

To keep the tables below compact, the SWORD programs are identified by abbreviations. Here is an explanation of each of them:

A blank entry means that it is unknown whether a feature is present. Footnotes are automatically numbered.

  1. Dates use locale appropriate date representation. Month names if used are localized, too.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Exportable as a SWORD module
  3. These are user-created and user-editable modules to contain general content. Initially conceived as simple prayer lists, they have expanded to include daily journals and topic-outline content. The user can maintain prayer lists, or prepare sermons, or write any structured content desired.
  4. Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew and other modules Right-to-Left scripts are displayed from right-to-left, properly aligned and correctly shaped, and with adequate implementation of the bidirectional algorithm.
  5. See Examples of Complex Rendering.
  6. The application can display correctly Brahmic, Indic, and related scripts (or other scripts of similar layout) - subject to availability of adequate fonts and standardized Unicode
  7. 7.0 7.1 To the extent that Uniscribe supports a given script
  8. Only when compiled with libsword ICU.
  9. Does not use ICU.
  10. Where the transliteration data is encoded within the module markup.
  11. Appears to support only Greek and Hebrew, and to be limited to a small subset of texts.
  12. Applicable only for modules with GlobalOptionFilter=OSISLemma or GlobalOptionFilter=ThMLLemma. The KJV module is one such example. See DevTools:conf Files.
  13. Applicable only for modules with GlobalOptionFilter=OSISGlosses or (deprecated) GlobalOptionFilter=OSISRuby. See Japanese Bibles. See DevTools:conf Files.
  14. Notes appear in popup. Extremely long notes may appear truncated in the popup.
  15. i.e. For reference elements with attribute type="x-glossary" ...
  16. Display these segments by some suitable method, for modules that have GlobalOptionFilter=OSISMorphSegmentation in the configuration file. An example is the WLC module.
  17. Currently, only some JSword based front-ends seem to support this feature. The SWORD engine has the switch available, but no change in output is effected.
  18. e.g. For module OHSB or WLC - click color code Hebrew from the cog menu.
  19. Applicable only for modules that have GlobalOptionFilter=ThMLVariants or GlobalOptionFilter=OSISVariants. For a front-end without proper support for this feature, the default is that both readings are displayed. See DevTools:conf Files.
  20. Module options context menu includes Variants: Primary/Secondary reading as well as All readings. The default is that only the Primary reading is displayed.
  21. Modules with a different book order may have navigation problems in some front-ends.
  22. As of version 1.9.0 which provides mapping between Synodal, German, Leningrad, Vulgate, KJV, and NRSV versifications and adds the IBT repository as a download location.
  23. 23.0 23.1 Av11n is supported as from release 1.7.3
  24. Including converting from one versification to another for Synodal, German, Leningrad, Vulgate, KJV and NRSV.
  25. This implicitly requires support for av11n, yet showing DC books also requires being able to navigate to them via the passage selector, etc.
  26. For modules such as SP (Samaritan Pentateuch) that are configured with GlobalOptionFilter=OSISXlit.
  27. For modules that include the abbreviation property in the configuration file (e.g. Most of the modules in the IBT repository).

  3. Zip installer for locally available modules only
  4. Includes a Module Maintainer Mode to install modules locally via WiFi.
  5. The application allows the user to supply the unlock key. The user does not have to manually edit the module's conf file.
  6. Appears to have stopped working properly since the release of iOS 9.x
  7. Also supports built-in key generator capability
  8. 8.0 8.1 Locked modules are listed with a padlock icon.
  9. Locked modules are displayed in brown font.
  10. Integrated installer allows download from more than one SWORD module repository.
  11. Xiphos supports automatic repository discovery, using the standard set maintained at CrossWire
  12. PocketSword module manager UI can add an FTP source.
  13. Xiphos module manager UI can add/remove repositories with either FTP or HTTP protocol.
  14. This feature is more relevant in mobile devices.
  15. PocketSword supports installing an archived module via a locally networked PC through a random port number.
  16. Ideally, this should be given before remote repositories data is refreshed!
  17. Warning is given once per session when the user is either about to install a module or before refreshing remote resources.
  18. Xiphos will extract info from repository if provided
  19. 19.0 19.1 19.2 19.3 Installed modules are highlighted
  20. The user is now shown the option if the module is already installed.
  21. When a module is installed that obsoletes an already installed module.
  22. This refers to the ability to select which of the installed modules are listed for selection, without having to uninstall any modules.
  23. Already installed modules are shown, but greyed out (not selectable for installation)
  24. Modules can be sorted for installed/uninstalled
  25. Modules are displayed in 2 columns: 'available for download' and 'installed'
  26. Modules are sorted by language code, though modules in the current user language are shown first.
  27. Languages are displayed in their own locale.
  28. Packages a module into SWORD's shareable "Raw Zip" format.
  29. This facilitates authors combining Bibles and commentaries as a pair. When a user opens one, the front-end UI asks the user to open the other. For modules with Companion=ModuleName in the conf file
  30. New SWORD feature currently being trialed in Bishop.
  31. Where a redistributable font is specified in the module conf file, installing the module can also install the font.
  32. The font may be included within the module's zip file, under a "fonts" sub-directory, or else a URL can be used to specify the font.
  33. Drops any module that requires a SWORD version beyond the engine's capability.
  34. 34.0 34.1 34.2 34.3 JSword has never cared about the field. It represents what the SWORD engine can and cannot handle. Rather it has a different mechanism. It examines each field in the conf for unsupported values and marks those where it makes a difference with “Unsupported”.
  35. 4.0.7 and later.
  36. Dropped modules are listed in the consoleLog.txt file in the MK user profile after the app closes.

Image Module Support

SWORD proper does not really "support" any particular image formats. The engine delivers text on demand to the applications, some of which incidentally contains references to image content. The engine itself isn't really aware that images are part of the deal, other than that some of the filters happen to scribble the right target markup, which is agnostic to what image format is referenced.

  1. Shrink large images to fit proportionally within the window or pane.
  2. All full-featured SWORD applications should already have support for this type.
  3. High Efficiency Image Format

Module Information

Some front-ends can display the complete information from the module's conf file. Others can display hardly anything at all of this information. Please use this section to record what each program can display for module information, and how this is accessed.

Please state whether the front-end can display the ShortPromo link, if present in the module conf file. Except for locked modules, this is the only configuration item that allows HTML.

  1. STEP's layout is so different to others that it is hard to compare. The user is given a choice between showing 1 panel or two, and whether to collapse the bookmark functionality or not. The user can also move the info/lexicon popup. Since all searches and Bible passages happen on different areas of the page, there is limited scope for layout.
  2. Open text panes can by user choice be linked or unlinked and will then move together to the next reference or stay at different references
  3. Only linked at the moment
  4. Several bible +/-commentary texts can be displayed in a set of parallel columns
  5. This is a requested feature for Ezra Bible App.
  6. Multiple tabs can be opened with each tab holding a different bible book / tagged verse list / search results.
  7. Used if the font is installed
  8. The fonts are set in stone on a language basis
  9. Global settings adjustment within the app. Currently (as of 2020-04-25), the +/- is not working in iPadOS.
  10. Font size is also adjustable per module.
  11. The fonts are set in stone on a language basis
  12. The fonts are set in stone on a language basis but this is not exposed to the user.
  13. This is available if compiled with ICU.
  14. Useful (e.g.) to prevent Strongs numbers obscuring the diacritics for the line below. Or (e.g.) for those non-Roman scripts that have some very tall characters.
  15. A per-module option.
  16. Using the suggested configuration directive PreferredCSSXHTML=style.css, naming a file in the module's DataPath directory. Generality for any XHTML renderer is advised, e.g. "body { -webkit-column-count: 2 ; }" can provide 2-column display, but only in a WebKit-driven application.
  17. As of xulsword 3.15
  18. In ~/.xiphos/default-style.css. This affects all modules' display. For advanced users.
  19. This is a requested feature for Ezra Bible App.
  20. For OSIS note elements that specify the tag using the n attribute, e.g. n="†"
  21. Via the context menu Module Options: Footnote / Cross-ref Markers.
  22. For text inside OSIS hi elements with type="small-caps".

  1. Index can also be created automatically for all installed modules if enabled.
  2. PocketSword search index creation is in hand (April 2020) by the Kahunapule.
  3. For a mobile device, it's generally much faster to download an index than to create one.
  4. Through plugins
  5. Other than by deleting the module or by resetting PocketSword via the iPhone System Preferences
  6. Done automatically as required, but the delete function is not accessible to users.
  7. User can continue to use application while index is being created.
  8. PocketSword cannot search at all unless there is a search index installed.
    i.e. All PocketSword searches currently use the Lucene search index installed for each module.
  9. Allowing phrases across verse boundaries
  10. e.g. All words / Exact phrase, Regular expressions, Boolean combinations, Case-[in]sensitive, etc.
  11. All words, any word, exact phrase.
  12. All words, any word, exact phrase, case-[in]sensitive
  13. Finds words based upon approximation.
  14. Lucene also provides for "fuzzy" searches. Try searching the KJV for: melchesidec~
    The tilde on the end indicates to the Lucene search engine to do a fuzzy search. This example will find Melchizedek in Gen 14:8, Psalm 110:4 and the 9 instances of Melchisedec in Hebrews, though it also gives Malchielites in Numbers 26:45 !
  15. What if you want to fuzzy match two or more words? Try this for example: tilgath~ AND paliser~
  16. Automatically normalize the Unicode search string to NFC when entered, so that it is able to match the normalized text in the module.
  17. Provide a table of matched words and their frequencies corresponding to any Strong's tag search.
  18. 18.0 18.1 Result includes up to 500 search results.
  19. Provide a table of matched Strong's numbers and their frequencies correspding to any regular search of a Strong's tagged module.
  20. 20.0 20.1 20.2 Commentaries when treated as Bibles
  21. Creation of lists of modules to be searched together
  22. Without having to search again.
  23. If we mean we're coming from a different type of search or a passage lookup.
  24. via independent search result windows
  25. Ezra Bible App handles search results just like any other text. So you can do anything with it that you can also do with other types of text (like module text or a tagged verse list) including searching within them (using CTRL + F).
  26. Limit search to one or more passages or books, possibly with predefined options for search OT only & search NT only.
  27. Search can be limited to OT or NT only
  28. Search term(s) highlighted in results
  29. Via context menu
  30. On verse list context menus via BibleSync.
