search script to assist with her own translation of Bhante Sujato’s EBTs into German for SuttaCentral. This library requires and has been tested with NodeJS v10.17.0. It is licensed as MIT open-source without restrictions.
The primary purpose of this library is to provide scriptable programmatic access to all segmented EBTs in bilara-data format for Linux platforms. Although translation import is supported, the primary use cases are for search and retrieval of segments and/or documents from any bilara-data repository. The
scv-bilara library is tri-lingual, which may be of benefit to non-English translators working with Bhante Sujato’s own English translations as the source. PM us if interested.
scv-bilara is stable, Voice will migrate its codebase to use
scv-bilara for all segmented documents. Voice will still use the REST SuttaCentral API for legacy documents, but
scv-bilara has more features and better performance than the existing Voice codebase for managing segmented documents.
We will be releasing maintenance fixes for
The Voice codebase has grown too large to be maintained as a single package. We’re splitting up stuff into independent libraries that can be used without Voice. We’ll also be looking at packaging the Voice TTS engine, which will become an independent npm module suitable for arbitrary TTS applications.
