My other sites
- Qenherkhopeshef a (now empty) site on Late Egyptian...
- my computing blog. Various technical points about java, drupal, openoffice...
- tksesh my former hieroglyphic editing software. more database oriented than JSesh is currently.
- HieroTeX a LaTeX extension for hieroglyphs. Really old software (1993)... I don't even want to compute how long ago it was. Still sort of runs.
- my original home page visit the web from 1993 (actually the content of the page is more 1997).
- your name in hieroglyphs I did (along with a friend of mine who produced a concurrent product) the very first "name in hieroglyphs" page on the web. At that time (1994), the lab computer would slow down when people asked for their names. Now, this is a php version, much more optimised (the original one created a LaTeX file, ran LaTeX, then produced a postscript file which was finally transformed into a gif).
JSesh site on Sourceforge
JSesh is distributed using the free software repository called sourceforge. You will find all versions of JSesh and the JSesh sources there
Softwares using JSesh
- PySesh, a library to use JSesh from the Python language, by Michele Moglia
- I do use JSesh to display glyphs in the Ramses project of Liege University. You can download slides presenting the project
- Jesus Angel Garcia Sanchez's OpenGlyph includes a lexicon and a number of easily accessible texts.
Sites with information about JSesh
- hierogeek, a site about computing and egyptology (inter alia). Very nice presentation of the stela of Ikai using javascrip to enliven the result.
- JSesh on linux, in Filip Vervloesem's site about Egyptological softwares on linux. He also has pages about MacOS X.
- Egyptian hieroglyphs web site has a progressive english tutorial for JSesh
Sites using JSesh
- Gabor Toth 's Egyptian Grammar course at Rutgers University, with lots of texts and text studies
- JSesh used for making plastic signs
Sites about hieroglyphic typesetting and Manuel de codage
- A good entry point is Saqqarah Technology's site EGPZ
- it contains a list of related sites
- problems with word and Indesign
Alternatives to JSesh
There are a number of other hieroglyphic wordprocessor available among which:
Mark-Jan Nederhof's software
Mark-Jan is a professor of computer science, and a respected expert in Natural Language Processing.
He has a number of very interesting tools for egyptian and hieroglyphs. They probably lack a bit of user-friendly polish if you want to create data for them, but they are very powerful.
- PhilologEg is a text database in RES format, which is able to display parallel texts in a very nice way. Hidden in the code of PhilologEg, you will find an OCR for ancient egyptian.
