Complete Pali Canon in your browser menubar

Postby rblumberg » Sun Apr 24, 2011 3:18 pm

The Digital Pali Reader is an extension for Firefox and Google Chrome browsers that makes the entire Pali Canon, in Pali, accessible through a button on your browser's menubar. You have your choice of several different methods of transliteration; when you click on a Pali word, the definition of that word appears in a window below the text; and you have access, through the extension's browser window, to all available online Pali-English dictionaries. If there are translations of the sutta you're viewing available on the web, you have links to those. And that just begins to touch on its many features. For serious students of the Pali Canon, it's an invaluable tool. I've used it extensively in preparing my own translations of a number of suttas on my Dharma Study site (a support site for the classes I teach at our Osher Lifelong Learning Institute continuing ed. program at the University of Cincinnati and elsewhere).

With regard,

Looks like the link for the Chrome extension isn't working. I'll try again later. This looks like a great resource!

WOW that is totally great - thank you!

The Firefox version works fine. So, even if you prefer another browser for daily use, why not download Firefox and use it only for the Tipitaka? That's what I have done.

There used to be support for Chrome (a long time ago), but not anymore I think. Firefox is required. The official site is: pali.sirimangalo.org.

Ok, thanks. So I installed it in Firefox 4, and it is activated.

So, how to use it now? I can't find any button or anything?

Edit: Nevermind, I found out that I first have to activate the addon-toolbar. Now, there is the button. :tongue:

If you use Windows, try setting the font to Arial Unicode MS (in tools, then options)... I found that the Pāli reads best in that way, it's very easy on the eyes.
