Link to SFM code documentation


#1

Hello!

This week, I learned how to create an app in Reading App builder. One item I struggled with (and admittedly because as a newbie, I probably just didn’t know where to look) was how to insert a simple line break. Another of our workshop participants just asked me how to insert a numbered list.

Long story short, a Google search on sfm syntax pulled up this page:

https://ubsicap.github.io/usfm/about/index.html

I didn’t see anything about this anywhere on the Reading App Builder product site. Perhaps a simple reference to this resource might be helpful to fellow newbies.

I don’t know if Dictionary or Scripture App Builder make use of SFM; if so, it might not be a bad idea to point that out on those product sites as well.

Cheers,
Eddie McHam

The USFM reference can be downloaded in PDF, CHM or web form, from here. http://paratext.org/about/usfm
This is what is used in SAB and RAB but not DAB. DAB uses LIFT files or XHTML generated by Fieldworks Language Explorer.

But point taken about adding those references to the documentation. Though they can be a bit overwhelming.

But there are some SFM markers that RAB and SAB support that are not in the USFM specification. \video \page \img
