Embedded

Book shelf - Embedded

this book shelf app contains the multiple kwik projects inside. The lua files of each project are embedded in the master app but the assets such as images, audio files of each book are not embedded but downloadable . Due to Apple's regulation, you can not load the lua files (programming codes) via Internet. The lua files must be embedded in the app but the other assets are retrieved from http server.

The master app controls which book to be loaded. Each book project can be built as a single standalone project.

When you like to add new books, you need to update the master app as well to include the new lua files of the new books.

You can create each book as a normal Kwik project but this embedded version is not appropriate the master app to hold hundreds of books.

For Each book project or TOC project, Ultimate configuration of Kwik4 is default. New Universal or other configuration of Kwik3 are not supported.
