The Repository directory has to be specified for the Install Manager in the SWORD Project for Windows, which uses FTP access. Likewise for the other front-ends based on the SWORD API.

The Catalog & ZIP directories have to be specified for the JSword based installer (e.g. as used for Bible Desktop), which uses HTTP access.

The 'Site Name' field is just a convenient name for managing/selecting repositories. Users may edit these without any loss of functionality, as long as they ensure that each is uniquely and appropriately named.

CrossWire maintains a Master Repositories List (filename: masterRepoList.conf) which is accessed by most front-end applications. Some front-ends require a refresh operation to ensure that the latest edition of the MRL is installed. The MRL includes some but not all of CrossWire repositories and some of the Affiliated repositories.

Some front-end apps (e.g. PocketSword) permit the manual addition of an FTP source though the Download UI.

Some front-end apps (e.g. Xiphos) also permit the manual addition of an HTTP source via the Module Manager UI.

The 43 modules from WBTI & BL that were formerly kept in CrossWire Beta have been moved to a separate repository. This is included in the Master Repositories List.

  1. Many of these translations are now available online at Bible Search hosted by the American Bible Society.

Experimental modules

These experimental modules are primarily intended for front-end developers. They require new features not supported by some front-end applications. This repository is not included in the Master Repositories List.

Lockman Foundation

We have at last been granted permission to distribute these 3 modules from the Lockman Foundation:

  • New American Standard Bible (NASB)
  • Nueva Biblia de las Américas (NBLA)
  • La Biblia de las Américas (LBLA)

Additionally, a gracious gift from Lockman, they have granted permission for CrossWire to distribute all 3 of these modules unlocked, for free.

The MRL has been updated to add a repository for the Lockman Foundation modules hosted on the CrossWire server.

 Site Name:              Lockman Foundation
 Site Machine Name:      ftp.crosswire.org
 Repository Directory:   /pub/sword/lockmanraw

 ZIP Directory:          /ftpmirror/pub/sword/lockmanpackages

Affiliated Repositories

Other Bible agencies

Any bona fide Bible agency may set up and maintain their own modules repository. Providing the agency adheres to orthodox Christian doctrine (i.e. not a cult!), a request for such a repository to be added to the Master Repostories List will be seriously considered by CrossWire.

NET Bible

Home of the New English Translation. This is included in the Master Repositories List.

 Site Name:              NET
 Site Machine Name:      ftp.bible.org
 Repository Directory:   /sword
 Catalog Directory:      /sword/raw
 ZIP Directory:          /sword/packages/rawzip

NB. This repository is no longer working. Trying to determine what has happened. David Haslam (talk) 22:59, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Xiphos

A number of random creations, including a fair number of dictionary, map and image modules: Tischendorf8 Greek NT, Hodge's Systematic Theology, and others. Daily Devotionals include BibleCompanion, MCheyne, OneYearRead. This is included in the Master Repositories List.

 Site Name:              Xiphos
 Site Machine Name:      ftp.xiphos.org
 Repository Directory:   .
 Catalog Directory:      /sword
 ZIP Directory:          /sword/zip

This repository is maintained by the developer of the Xiphos Bible study app for Linux & Windows.

Institute for Bible Translation

The Institute for Bible Translation has a SWORD repository. This is included in the Master Repositories List.

 Site Name:              IBT

 ZIP Directory:          /ftpmirror/pub/modsword/rawzip

The Institute for Bible Translation provides a number of Bible translations in various languages of Central Asia and the CIS. Alongside these translations are modules for English, Russian, Ukrainian and the original Bible languages (Hebrew & Greek). Further modules are in preparation. Several of the translations have linked dictionary modules.

STEP Bible

The Tyndale House STEPBible Data Repository hosts data created for STEPBible.org originated by Tyndale House Cambridge with a CC BY 4.0 license.

One of the datasets hosted is Bible modules for OSIS Sword software Bibles in the same format as CrossWire modules which can be used in any SWORD-compatible software. Currently, this only contains a small number of modules, but is set to grow in future. In February 2021, a proper SWORD repository has been set up. This will soon be added by CrossWire to the MRL.

 Site Name:              STEP Bible
 Site Machine Name:      ftp.stepbible.org
 Repository Directory:   /pub/sword
 Catalog Directory:      /pub/sword
 ZIP Directory:          /pub/sword/zip

STEP Bible is built using the JSword API.
