Building SwordSearcher Modules with Forge
|Top Previous Next|
For most users, SwordSearcher's built-in user module features are more than enough for creating content in SwordSearcher. However, authors, publishers, and power users can take module creation for SwordSearcher to the next level with Forge, an external module building tool.
Forge For SwordSearcher is a utility that authors, publishers, and power users can use to create SwordSearcher library modules from source files. If you're interested, please see the Forge for SwordSearcher website.
What Forge Does:
Forge takes a source file containing specially formatted text and builds SwordSearcher commentary, book, or Bible modules. Forge can compile read-only or user-editable modules.
There are no licensing fees to use Forge to publish your text in SwordSearcher format, and Forge is a completely free utility.
See the Forge for SwordSearcher website for complete details and to download Forge.
Tip: You can create a user module in SwordSearcher for editing. When you are satisfied with the module, you can use the User > Export function to export the content of your user module to a file that can be compiled by Forge as a locked (non-editable) module, which you can distribute to other users.
