Kio-Sword is a lightweight easy-to-use Bible tool for KDE. It provides access to Bibles, commentaries and other texts in an easy to use and attractive interface -- the Konqueror web browser. It does so using the SWORD Bible project and implementing a KDE ioslave, providing the sword:/ protocol.

Despite the low release number, it is quite useable and stable. It includes searching, hyperlinked cross-references and Strongs numbers and various options for customisation.

If you use BibleTime, Kio-Sword will be able to use all the SWORD modules you already have without any extra action. It makes a nice light-weight companion to BibleTime for when you just want to get a verse quickly straight from Konqueror without loading up a large program. Using Konqueror split views you can create parallel reading panels very easily.

Out-of-the-box, this will not compile if you have sword 1.5.8 due to a change in the sword API. There are, however, instructions in the INSTALL file about how to fix this. Also note that the Debian Sarge package is incompatible with Kubuntu Breezy (due to the same problem).


2006-12-16: - Release 0.3
* Fixed various bugs, especially to do with non-ascii characters (e.g. searching, links to Bible books in non-English locales)
* Uploaded both a Debian Sarge and Ubuntu Dapper package

2006-01-06: - New release.
Changes include:
* Better support for Bibles in RTL languages (Arabic, Hebrew)
* Supports localised names for books of the Bible
* New, simplified page design using cleaner and better HTML (no tables, semantic HTML)
* Settings propagate in URLs, so you can turn a setting on and it stays on (and this works even if multiple kio_sword processes are spawned)
* Access keys for navigation and toggling formatting settings
* Title of the page is meaningful (much better for browsing history in Konqueror)
* New shortcut for Bible verses: e.g. sword:John 3:16 (note there is no forward slash after "sword:") to go to your default Bible
* Lots of cleaning up of the code, including a new system for settings and output of HTML, using namespaces nicely and naming classes sensibly :-) * Search page pre-selects the default Bible as the module to search
* Various bug fixes

- Corrected the dependencies on the Debian i386 package, now at version 0.1-2. (I no longer have an AMD64 setup so I can't fix that package as well)

 web shortcut?

 by jazzuban on: Feb 3 2007
Score 50%

I tried to add a web shortcut for konqueror, so that typing 'b jn 1' in address bar would go to, for example,
sword://KJV/Jn 1
but unfortunately, konqueror changes it to an invalid url:
the plus sign there really breaks the fun. Any way around this?

I guess the problem you are dealing with is Konqueror behaviour, and I can't think of a way to fix that.

However, for your specific task, use "sword:John 1", and KioSword will redirect to "sword:/[Your chosen default Bible]/John 1". I think that is documented in the help pages.

Solved. Had the wrong syntax.

To easily display any verse of the bible, or search for a word from Konqueror,

Configure Konqueror (from menu Settings), Web Shortcuts, [x] Enable Web Shortcuts, New
Name: Bible Verse
URI: sword:/KJV/\{1} \{2}
Shortcuts: b,v

Name: Bible Search
URI: sword:/?query=\{@}&module=KJV&stype=words&searchq=Search
Shortcuts: bs,s

Keyword Delimiter: Space

Modify to taste.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
