The original project started in 2016 aimed to enable the crowd sourced transcription, and translation of the images of the miscellaneous collections at the University of Edinburgh, but the underlying packages were eventually released separately to allow more modular sharing of the open source code so others could also develop similar resources.
The sub-projects and packages:
- The website to crowd source the University of Edinburgh’s Collections.
- Github Repo: https://github.com/BluePigeons/Polyglot
- Client-side JS and CSS library for lightweight annotations of IIIF images,
- Using LeafletJS with Leaflet-IIIF, LeafletDraw, JQuery, JQuery UI, and Bootstrap.
- Github Repo: https://github.com/UoEMainLibrary/polyanno
- Server-side NodeJS package for connecting a Polyanno website to MongoDB database.
- Using Express, Mongoose.
- Github Repo: https://github.com/BluePigeons/polyanno_storage
All The Unicode
- Client-side JS and CSS library to enable optimal text input UI for large range of languages, formats and characters.
- Github Repo: https://github.com/BluePigeons/alltheunicode
- Client-side JS and CSS library to enable the responsive drag and drop UI, with optional minimising, of multiple dynamically generated boxes with no use of popups.
- Github Repo: https://github.com/BluePigeons/dragon_drop
I have blogged about the development of this across my original internship in the summer of 2016 in my series of posts “Polyanno: Adventures in Annotation”, but will also continue to discuss to further developments as I continue to work on the project here!
