[sword-devel] BibleZ Web Edition

the last days I've tried to build a NPAPI browser plugin to port BibleZ 
HD to Chrome/Safari. The plugin is build with the firebreath SDK 
(http://firebreath.org) so it shouldn't be that difficult to build the 
plugin for Windows or Mac. Currently there is only a 32bit linux build 
of the plugin.

To test BibleZ Web Edition (you need a 32bit Linux or build the plugin 
for your plattform), install the plugin "npSwordPlugin.so" 
(https://github.com/zefanja/biblez-plugin) in ~/.mozilla/plugins and 
open http://zefanjas.de/biblezweb in Chrome/Chromium (to start chrome in 
app mode: chromium/chrome --app=http://zefanjas.de/biblezweb)

Currently there is no support for InstallMgr (I will port this later), 
but you can use all your installed modules (bibles and commentaries) if 
SWORD_PATH is set.

To open the AppMenu press CTRL + ` or STRG + ^.

BibleZ Web Edition is in a very early stage so some things will not work.

You can run BibleZ Web Edtion offline. Download the sources and open 
index.html, but you need to run Chrome/Chromium with the 
"--disable-web-security" flag (because XHRRequest are only allowed for 
http and not local file access).
