Community-zing VIVO Scholars

The top-level goals of this effort are to make sure that the broader VIVO community can install and use VIVO Scholars for local needs. Focus areas of this sprint may include:

  1. Ensure that local styling and branding are based on configuration
  2. Facilitate addition/removal of custom fields and types
    1. Ideally, this will be further moved into configuration, not requiring code changes
  3. Establish well-documented deployment model, using both Docker and natively
  4. Loading VIVO Scholar's Solr index on-demand
  5. Loading VIVO Scholar's Solr index by connecting to VIVO's triplestore - and report back to team regarding performance
    1. directly against TDB as designed
    2. over VIVO SPARQLapi instead of native TDB connection against TDB database
    3. directly against SDB
    4. over VIVO SparqlAPI instead of native SDB connectin

In order for the effort to be successful, we will need the following skills:

  • Dev-ops
  • Documentation
  • Testing
  • Development
