e-Sword Topical File Organizer

This tool walks through the meta-data table of each Topical File, and selects those who match the keyword that the user requested. When it has run through all of the available topical files, it moves the selected resources to the directory that e-Sword expects to find its resources in.

This tool is currently in pre-alpha.

Current points of failure:
* New resources may not be correctly archived, prior to searching for the appropriate resources;
* New resources may not be correctly backed up, prior to searching for the appropriate resources;
* The resource is not correctly copied to the location that e-Sword expects to find it in;
* If a resource does not contain the meta-data table, it will be omitted from the search;
* Incomplete data in the meta-data table will result in relevant resources been omitted, simply because they were completely, and correctly labeled;


Roadmap:

  • Reliably select and move topical files to the expected location;
  • Add support for other e-Sword resource types;
  • Automatically add the copyright table to resources it encounters that do not include it;
  • Automatically add the meta-data table to resources it encounters that do not include it;
  • Automatically fill in as much of the meta-data table as it can, without asking the user;
  • Nudge the user to complete an incomplete meta-data table, as it encounters them;
  • Nudge the user to complete an incomplete copyright table, as it encounters them;
