eXist app for browsing & analyzing abstracts of the TEI conference 2016

Joe Wicentowski
Hi all,

See the announcement below from the TEI mailing list about a new site
built on eXist, online at
https://tei2016app.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/pages/index.html with source for
building an EXPath application package available at
https://github.com/acdh-oeaw/TEI2016abstracts.  Besides just a viewer
of texts, the app has added some nice analytical features: lists and
charts of submitters' names their gender, countries, and institutions.

Further digging revealed that the creators of this app also published
a series of tutorials about creating "digital edition web apps" with
eXist: https://howto.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/blog/books/how-to-build-a-digital-edition-web-app/.
It's great to see people sharing their knowledge with others.


p.s. I just opened up HipChat's Existdb room and noticed that
Magdalena already shared the post below there.  "Existdb" - a new
variant not covered in my earlier post,

Subject: A web app to publish the TEI XML abstracts of the TEI conference 2016
To: [hidden email]

Dear colleagues,

a little while ago, we announced the publication of the TEI 2016
conference abstracts as XML TEI files on Github
(https://github.com/acdh-oeaw/TEI2016abstracts) and invited you to do
any work you might be inspired to do with these documents. Indeed,
someone was inspired: Our ACDH colleague Peter Andorfer
([hidden email]) built “A little application to publish the
abstracts of the TEI conference 2016” with the assistance of Vanessa
Hannesschläger ([hidden email]). The app also
includes several analyses of the data such as charts showing the
gender distribution among the conference contributors. We are very
happy to be able to share this application with you, which you can
access here: https://tei2016app.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/

If you would like to edit or work with the data or have a wish for
further functionalities, please visit the code repo on Github
(https://github.com/acdh-oeaw/tei-abstracts-app) and leave us an
issue. If you find the app useful and would like to use it for
publishing the abstracts of your own next conference, please do not
hesitate to do so: The code is open source!

If you have any comments or remarks, we will love to hear from you.

Best wishes,

The TEI 2016 conference team
