Well, this seems to be dismissing a possibility of only-JS Sword
app too quickly. Especially, considering that I have
https://github.com/zefanja/biblez-ng installed on my Firefox OS
and it works.
But of course, let all flowers bloom, we can have multiple
solutions to one problem. However, I see immediately couple of
* Offline access. Of course, we can store megabyte JSONs in the
phone, instead of storing native XML, but I am not sure
dealing with huge JSONs is that much faster than some
reasonably good access to XML? Is it? How large is the Book
of Psalms in JSON?
And if you say that users are online 100% time than it is
just not true. Firefox OS is meant for low-end phones in poor
countries where 3G bandwidth (don’t even start to hope for
4G) is quite often metered. Heck, it is metered even here in
relatively affluent Prague, Czechia (and I know that this is
not that much huge exception of Czechia). Not mentioning
metro, inside of churches, and other closed spaces where
connection is either extremely poor or non-existent.
* OSIS uses almost universally milestoned-XML and there is
a reason for that. It seems to me that JSON is by its nature
exact opposite of milestones. How would you deal with
chapters, verses, pericopes, crossing each other?

And front-end demo (Web or CLI)?
