Hi all, There is this really nice website, sefaria, that offers PD texts.

I have written a little python script that pulls each chapter and adds it into a text format that can easily be imported by Accordance.


I hope to create targum-files, but one could also compile the text of the mishna, or another source.


So far so good (as I work on debugging, ahem), but I have a question.

For if I wanted to create bilingual modules, (say a targum in hebrew and in an english translation) the best approach would be to format it as user bible, in order to make it able to run parallel with each other and other modules. Right?


Now, would it be possible to do this also for extra-biblical texts. In the rabbinic area the Mishna comes to mind, but this applies to a hebrew version of Maccabees, I could pull from Sefaria. Does Accordance accept extra biblical books in the 'bible' modules? I hope it is, or at least could be made possible, looking at all the modules on Patristics. But if not, how should I proceed, of could this be made possible?

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: user modules, sefaria.org, scripting, extra-biblical
