Shamela Library For Mac


Did you try to use Shamela Library on MAC (10.10 Yosemite)? It is a headache.. There is no support for MAC yet. The library has iPad application but it is not working on MAC, of course. I tried xcode for its emulator to use Shamela Library for iPad on MAC but it requires developer account. Then I tried to use a Windows emulator to run Shamela Library on MAC. I tested with one of the good supported emulator, Cross Over, which is a commercial version of wine. Again it is failed because of Arabic font issues.

Shamela Library For Mac Os

As a result, I have achieved my aim, using Shamela Library on MAC, by using Virtual Box.

I downloaded and installed virtual box, then downloaded and installed Windows XP SP3 on Virtual Box, then downloaded and installed Shamela Library. Now fixing the Arabic Font issue of Shamela Library is easy since we have a full Windows. Just go to: Start Menu -> Control Panel -> “Regional and Language Options”. Then, go to the “Languages” tab and tick “Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai)” option. Then, go to “Advanced” tab and choose “Arabic (Saudi Arabia)” from “Language for non-Unicode programs”. Click on Okay and let Windows restart. That’s it!

This is an anthology in progress of literature in English. It is designed to be a transatlantic anthology, with examples of texts written in the British Isles, but also colonial America, wand the United States. Many of the texts have been freshly edited and annotated to provide authoritative and curated editions for the use of students and general readers, and to create an alternative to expensive print anthologies. Over time, all of these texts (and more) will be edited and annotated to use the full resources enabled by the digitization of literary works. Please feel free to comment on these texts; we hope to improve the anthology based on the needs of readers.

The anthology is designed to work well on desktop and laptop computers, but also mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. We include the plug-in, which allows readers to add their own layer of annotation to the texts–to underscore key passages, add notes, ask questions. Go to for more information on how the plug-in works.

This is very much a work in progress. Some texts have been edited and annotated fully; others partially; others not at all. Author biographies are being drafted; material is being added. Keep checking back for updates.

This project is open-access, and the texts are available for anyone to use as they wish. We also invite others to join in the project by editing and annotating texts of their own, which can be incorporated in the site to create a free, open-access anthology of reliable works for use in the classroom.
