[EP-tech] Re: EPrints Dev Powwow (yesterday)

The links for the Bootstrap'ing demo were:

http://roar.uel.ac.uk/ (Publications)
http://data.uel.ac.uk/ (Data)

You can see their reciprocal links implementation following the test dataset link in the data repository and looking under the Links section on the right.

Hi all,

ULCC hosted the first EPrints Dev Powwow yesterday: http://dablog.ulcc.ac.uk/2014/08/06/ulcc-hosts-inaugural-eprints-developer-pow-wow/

The main focus were:

(1) the updated Xapian integration

Code at https://github.com/eprints/xapianv2

Presentation slides at http://pubs.ulcc.ac.uk/182/ (Xapian intro and integration details)

Demo at http://puffin.ecs.soton.ac.uk/cgi/xapian/simple (and /advanced)

(2) EPrints4 under the hood

Code at https://github.com/eprints/eprints/tree/eprints4

High-level presentation of tested/implemented features: http://pubs.ulcc.ac.uk/183/

We also discussed the options for modernising the UI and which technologies/frameworks could be used - were mentioned: jQuery (over Prototype), Bootstrap templates, Mustache (server-side) and Mustache-JS (client-side). There seems to be a general consensus that building HTML in PERL is a tedious task and should be discarded.

(3) Bootstrap'ing EPrints

(sorry, I didn't note the URL of the demo, link anyone?)

(4) Github code management

Announcements will be made regarding cleaning up the branches on github (notifications will be sent beforehand) - expect something like:

- deprecating the "master" branch
- incorporating some selected diff's from master to 3.3 (the so-called "missing commits")
- make the 3.3 branch *THE* dev branch

Thanks to ULCC for organising and hosting the event, which, hopefully, will become a regular meeting.
