[sword-devel] Open source DuoLingo

I've updated the lesson selection to suck a bit less and fixed the
problem when a lesson quiz was getting stuck toward the end when only a
few cards were left to master. Same link:
The source for our flashcards facility is here. There is much more in
that repo than just the quizzer that I introduced a few days ago.
The new quizzer is under the www/ folder.
You asked about a web application, and there is a web application
available under the web/ folder, written in JSP. The new www/ folder
was started from this, but is purely html/js/css now, with no server
backend required. This allows the www/ folder to easily be turned into
a mobile application which will run on both iOS and Android without
changes using something like Cordova. That is my current projected goal.
I hope that makes sense. There is the beginnings of code to look in an
audio/ folder to allow the user to hear the words. That would be next.
I might try to first investigate using some kind of text-to-speech
service via Google or Apple. That won't give us Erasmian pronunciation,
but if you talk with a modern Greek studying ancient languages they mock
us for our pronunciation anyway :)
Would love any help or suggestions.
