I thought I'd bring up a series of 3 articles by Larosa Johnson of
especially since the Sword project came up a few times in the comments:
The Ultimate Bible Software Application
Adobe AIR was mentioned for a cross platform solution that could also
run on the web.
Flex apps like Buzzword and Saffron make it clear to me that a very
nice application is possible,
across Windows, Macintosh, Linux and with some limitations, the web.
Of course re-implementing the functionality of Sword in ActionScript 3
would be a lot of work,
and the single-threaded limitation makes it challenging to maintain
searching. One the other hand, AS3 is a fairly nice very high-level
language, and the Flex SDK
is free, so cost need not hinder development.
Just wondering if anyone has considered this before or done any work
towards this end?
