ScriptX is a command line tool designed to extract scriptures out of the American Sign Language version of the New World Translation, NWT, Bible published by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania. It is useful when you need specific scripture(s) in a standalone file. A quick example would be if you need to splice scriptures into another video.
All the meta data stored within the original file is retained even after being extracted, so when extracting a range you will still have access to chapter markers within your extracted video.
- Extract single or a range of scriptures eg.
-v 5-10extracts verses ranging from 5 to 10
- Extracts all scriptures into individual files with
- Maintains all metadata from the original file
- Doesn't transcode so blazing :fire: fast!
Some scripture videos files that can be downloaded from https://www.jw.org do not contain the meta data necessary for ScriptX to process. At the moment there are not work around for this problem. If ScriptX is ran on a file that causes a crash, this is likely the problem.
ffmpeg is required and has to be installed.
ScriptX hasn't been tested on Windows but it should work. If it doesn't create an issue and I will look into it.
Use Cargo to install ScriptX.
$ cargo install scriptx
If you prefer to install using the repository instead:
