DH17 Paper (Mapping STC)

Met with JJ and TLG today to go over the paper abstract and plan out what we need to do for the DH paper. We've decided to do an even smaller section of Cornhill than previously thought and will attempt to crossreference through a variety of means. What we want is a very small proof of concept with some visuals for the presentation and not anything close to a working prototype.

We will be meeting again on Friday to finish getting all of the data into the right forms and then I will begin work on cross-referencing against the TCP/ESTC.

Graves: fixed legacy page redirect bug, and pushed from alpha to beta

Fixed the bug whereby errors in the old site setup, which were resulting in URLs which had extra path components in them, were not being successfully redirected to the correct new page. Changed version from alpha to beta. I think everything is done now.

Fixes to Graves

I realized that the ref/@targets in the site map, which pointed to the HTML pages, were technically incorrect. They pointed to the pages as if they were in the same directory, not two levels up. After working on it for an hour in the lab, I got home and realized the solution was fairly simple: add '../../' to the @target when generating the site map, and then in the XHTML5 generation (since it relies on the @target for filenames/locations, etc) pre-process the site map so that all @targets are stripped of their path. I decided to add the final few people that were missing; one was a misspelling and the other 3 are unidentified (but likely also misspellings, which I've noted in the notes). Graves is now passing the diagnostics.

Timesheets and contracts

Did JT's timesheet; negotiated and wrote a new contract etc. for JT; planned his Endings work; chased up TL's timesheet which is not complete; did some work on diagnostics and Graves.

Fixes to Graves

The Endings diagnostics process caught a number of problems in the original and standalone generation of Graves, particularly in how prefixDef was being included (either multiply or not at all) into the files. That's now fixed and all three filesets (source, original, standalone) have the same four errors:
  • CP
  • DW
  • RPG
  • WPG
I will email EGW about these so we can get them cleared before we release the live web-app.

Lots of work on all four projects

Addressing some common issues with search on the webapp:

  • MoEML did not have the search results highlighting constraint that limits hits within a document to ten, which I'd already implemented for Mariage and Scancan. That's now done.
  • It was possible to get eXist error pages if you crafted an ill-formed search. I'm now trapping that with a try-catch and just returning zero hits (all projects).
  • Wildcard searching with leading wildcards is now implemented.
  • Search tips page has been rewritten for MoEML.
