Status

The latest release is version 1.10.0. The corresponding version of the Greek Reference Database Creator is 1.2.0.

You can view a changelog for each release on the Releases page.

Greek Reference is not under active development at this time.

Building the App

The texts used in this app are contained in a pair of databases called lexicon.db and syntax.db. These are generated using a simple Java program, the Greek Reference Database Creator, which is included as a submodule in this repository. The database files are zipped and placed in this project's assets directory. They must be named lexicon.zip and syntax.zip in order to work with the SQLiteAssetHelper library used to copy them to the user's device.

The app uses the new Gradle-based Android build system. If you'd like to assemble a signed APK, place your keystore in the root directory along with a release.properties file containing your keystore credentials. An example file called release.properties.sample is included in the project.
