The Long and Winding Road
February 9, 2010 in Uncategorized
Biblefox is a project I have been working on for about a year and a half, and I am just now approaching the point where I want to promote it. I started this development blog early on, but didn’t keep up with it because my ideas for Biblefox were always changing so quickly. Because Biblefox is now starting to solidify into what I want it to be, I’m starting up this blog again.
Biblefox grew out of a desire I had to create a dynamic Study Bible. What it has become is a site in which anyone can write about the Bible and share their thoughts with others. I started by building on top of WordPress MU. Last August, I also started using BuddyPress on the site.
What I have been able to do is create a plugin that indexes WordPress blogs and BuddyPress activity streams according to the scriptures mentioned. This means that when you write about a Bible passage, your friends can find it easily when they are reading that passage themselves – it is a dynamic Study Bible created by your friends.
I will soon be releasing an open source plugin so anyone can index their own WordPress blog or BuddyPress site, and I will be supporting that plugin here on this Development blog.
