At the end of last month, I got around a Windows PC and was able to send to GitHub the updates that have been pending for the All Books Project (as of right now, I’ve not seen a solid GitHub app for the iPad that works with the web developer app Textastic; open to recommendations). So, if you aren’t watching that repo, I would recommend that you take a look at All Books on GitHub and download the update. Here’s the summary of the updates
- added HTML5 local storage for usage stats (needs fixing)
- fixed a number of books which had incorrect URL pointers
- fixed issue with navigation where stats wouldn’t hide
- fixed issue with navigation where clicking on All Books from OT hid OT books instead of keeping them seen
- shortened text on Reset Stats button
- added CSS for stats area
- added text-ellipsis for buttons
That said, All Books is also designed to be a gift to the folks at Bible.org. They have an excellent HTML package of the NET (New English Translation) Bible, but the HTML interface for it wasn’t the easiest to use on tablet and mobile devices. All Books answers that interface question, and sets the ground for the kind of interface that (when scripted) can easily translate across languages and levels of literacy. So to that end, I hope the Bible.org folks can appreciate these and keep pushing the Gospel forward.
If you have comments towards All Books, or would like to contribute to the project, visit the All Books Project on GitHub and just jump right on in. As for me, there’s an upcoming update to my Nokia N8 which might help performance issues, and finally get me on ball to some of the next features for this.
