Addressing some common issues with search on the webapp:
With RE's help, got four new exists deployed, with their apps working, and publicly available. Lesson learned:
Other than one case of that happening with the MoEML app, everything worked as planned; the deployment script goes seamlessly, the XARs all worked, and everything looks good. Couple of bugs to fix in MoEML and Mariage.
The project information essay is going to take a while to write, and I can't live with the mechanical rendering of the teiHeader metadata from the project_metadata page, so I've given it some textual content in the form of a very brief history of the project. That will act as a decent placeholder until EGW has finished her article.
With JT, slightly edited our paper for DH to include a reference to our diagnostics github project and to add a figure. Now submitted.
Finished building the spreadsheet for ContentDM for JF. Found and fixed some broken fallout from old ANSI chars in the process.
RE fixed the ACL issue that was blocking our access, and although it's still nailed down to the HCMC VLAN, it's working well. Fixed a couple of bugs in the controller.
Wrote a simple new utility XSLT to generate data for the Library, following JF's requirements; also a fix to an encoding issue revealed by this process.
JT's new super-fast regex-based approach is working well for Linux and Mac, but one small function in it breaks things on Windows; I think it's an XPath regex which needs double-escaping instead of single-escaping. Meanwhile, the process itself is throwing up huge numbers of errors we can work on in MoEML.
We are aiming to produce a product for general use by the time of the DH conference presentation, and to add info about it to an edited version of the conf paper due at the end of the month, so pushing forward with more straightforward stuff this morning. Added file-existence checking for XML and text files; experimented with methods of checking for the existence of binary files, but so far I've only found things that work in Saxon PE or EE. This approach might work, though.
Following up on a hint from RC at Oxygen, I figured out how to use a Swing JFileChooser dialog to let the user select their project directory, directly from ant; this is neat and very useful. It took a while to nail down exactly how best to do it, and I still have some cleanup to do to make the process fail more elegantly if the user cancels out of the dialog, but we're nearly there. Haven't tested on Windows yet either.
