Sam’s Greenstone Blog 27/1/2012

sjm84. Friday, January 27th, 2012.

This week I have been touching up on a few unfinished features. One of these was the mapping features that I can’t remember whether or not I have written about before. Basically, if your documents have coordinate information (i.e. latitude and longitude information) we now have a feature that will map those documents on a map. This feature can now be really easily enabled. We will write some documentation on this when we get the chance.

The new theme is also added which makes Greenstone 3 look a lot nicer. We’re still working on the ability to allow easy theme changing. We need to get the authentication working before we can enable this feature, as only the collection administrator should be able to change the theme.

Next week I will experimenting with trying to get more standard URLs in Greenstone 3 (e.g. http://localhost:8383/greenstone3/dev/collection/demo/document/HASHc5bce2d6d3e5b04e470ec8) rather than what we currently use.

P.S. If you’re wondering why there is no update from Anu this week, it is because she is away in India for 5 weeks on holiday.
