Other bugs and features
Purpose of Application:
This app is useful for reading Pāḷi texts. It is similar to TPP. Total feature migration is planned in the future. If you read pāḷi and use a reading app, you will most likely prefer this as your pāḷi reading app on the phone or desktop. However, at the moment some features are better in TPP.
Typing Roman Letters:
Typing in Roman script has full integration with the velthuis ascii typing system which is now a standard in pali. The keyboard chart can be found on this Wikipedia page
The dictionary and reading experience is where TPR shines the most. We have included Digital Pāḷi Dictionary and Pāḷi English Ultimate dictionaries as part of the standard installed dictionaries. Soon you will be able to download more.
User Interface Diagram:
Multiview, Hide/Show, and Expand/Shrink Panel
Easily open, hide show, new documents. Expand hide panel
Searching is very fast because we use an indexed Sqlite Full Text Search (FTS) technology.
Turn on and off filter chips
Bookmarks and Recent:
Recent visits and bookmarks items can be deleted by clicking on the trash can on the upper right corner of the screen. You can also swipe right individually and mark for deletion.
Now you can add extensions to add English and Pāḷi line by line mula suttas. Also dictionary updates for DPD and PEU. Please watch the Video on YouTube to fully understand how to use this.
The main programmer for this app is Venerable Ashin Pannyadazza. His apps can be found here for Apple and here for Android. He is a very talented self taught programmer and structures his code very nicely according to proper coding practices. I was responsible for the project management, and some minor programming tasks. The project and code are available on github which also lists the original code this was forked from. If you would like to help in technical and non-technical ways, please contact us. We also owe gratitude to Tharindu Madushanka who has donated his time for the Apple submissions to the Path Nirvana Foundation’s App store listing.
