Plugin: Bible Citation

This plugin takes a bible citation from the text editor and displays the quote on the viewer.

You can cite multiple verses from the same chapter, multiple chapters from the same book, or even a range from book to book:

(Juan 3:16-17,18)
(Salmos 1:1, 16:1-2)
(Génesis 1 - Éxodo 40)

First, thanks for the plugin. I'll find it useful. But for now, I can't get it to work. What kind of file do I need? I downloaded the ESV in xml format, but I can't get it to work. Do you have a link to Bible files that will work with the plugin? I'm using Joplin 2.4.9.


Cool! Thanks for making this. Have you added it to the official repository?

No real need, but would be a fun exercise:

  • Convert a public-domain or a King James Version bible into Joplin import format. With
  • Every bible-book a notebook
  • Every chapter a note
  • Every verse number an H1 header
  • With cross references as links and backlinks
  • With links to previous and next chapter in each note.

And with the right plugins: show a graph.

:grin: But you know, just because it can be done.

@DanteCoder Any ideas on why the plugin isn't working for me? I've tried various xml files but to no avail. (See my post above from 3 days ago.) Thanks.

One could imagine a similar plugin for Marx's capital :thinking:

What am I doing wrong? The plugin is correctly installed.

Also, where can i find the .xml files? I would like to add the latin Vulgate bible.


Yes, the bibles are in the source code. I think that you have to recompile it changing the path to the xml bible in OSIS format.
Im looking for help to add an option to select a desired bible file from settings.

The xml file has to be in OSIS format. I added some bibles in that format in the source code. But if you would like to add a new bible you have to recompile changing the path to you OSIS bible.
I want to fix that but as i'm very new to programming I would use some help to add an option to select the bible file from the settings.

Not yet, as the plugin It's in its first stages and I think there is some work to do. btw how can I add it to the official repo? I'm very new to the Joplin community.

Would be nice to convert e-Sword bblx files to work with this plug-in.

There is a program to convern any bible format from one another. It's called " Church Software: Simple Bible Reader / Converter"
I used that software to convert a normal xml bible to osis xml, but I think it supports e-Sword bibles.
