GNT Browser

The biggest news today in the sphere of the biblioblogger is, of course, the GNT Browser. I can’t remember who broke the news first, but thanks for doing so.

The browser is apparently the work of a Zack Huber (of whom I was not familiar before this), and features a nice interface to the data in Tauber’s Morph GNT and Perseus’ lexicon.

The interface is nice and it generates the pages very quickly. And everything is in unicode, which is good. And everything works well in Firefox. Also good. Mouseovers show part of speech, a gloss or two, and morphology, which is very nice. All in all, excellent interface. Good work!

One question, though. Could you expose your text and lexicon through a webservice? I’d love to be able to consume it programmatically. Looks like you’ve got good stuff going there. This is a nice contribution to online biblical studies stuff.

A webservice...interesting idea. What kind of an API are you thinking of?
