Latest commit ac47106 Sep 12, 2018


Autographa Lite

React re-write of an earlier version of the app. All further development will be done here.

This is a standalone desktop application which hopes to aid and be a friendly companion of the Bible Translator. In essence it is a basic USFM editor which is capable of import and export of USFM files. It has handy features like color-coded diffs across imported texts for comparison between revisions, search and replace and export to formatted HTML.

Developer Setup

It is relatively easy to setup the application locally for development.


Node JS 8.9.3
Yarn 1.9.4
Python 2 (One of our build tools breaks under Python 3.)

Mac (tested on MacOS Sierra 10.13.6) and *nix Setup (tested on Ububtu 18.04)

Fork this repository.
# In bash like shell

% cd autographa-lite && yarn install
% yarn start

This should start the application and open up the main screen.
