DSpace 7 had a large presence at OR2019 in Hamburg, Germany, including two workshops and seven major talks.
All the materials (slides, etc) and video recordings from OR2019 are available off the wiki page DSpace 7 at OR2019. Please note that workshops were not recorded, but all materials (slides / code examples) are linked off that page.
The goal of this working group, led by Tim Donohue, is to create a new, single User Interface (UI) for DSpace that implements all functionality currently available in JSPUI and XMLUI. The UI will interact with DSpace core data through a completely new REST API to insure complete separation of the user layer from the data layer. This working group is split into two subteams: an Angular Subteam, led by Art Lowel (Atmire), which is concentrating on building a modern, responsive, client-side user interface using Angular and a REST API Subteam, led by Andrea Bollini (4Science), which is concentrating on building a new REST API based on state-of-art technologies, standards and best practices.
Latest, high level status of DSpace 7 development is captured in our Development Planning Spreadsheet. This spreadsheet provides details on what features are considered completed (i.e. functional), in progress, and still remaining to do.
Implementation of the User Interface and the REST API with code delivered on GitHub along with documentation on how to use, install, and extend the interface.
User Interface: Angular 5
REST API: Java
Demo site: https://dspace7-demo.atmire.com/
REST API Subteam is facilitated by Andrea Bollini (4Science)
