Short excited announcement

I have started some serious work on the xSiteable Publishing Framework which combines a lot of things I've been working on for the last few years. This is a framework that's been brewing for quite some time, and hence I've decided to can the xSiteable project as a stand-alone thing; the good stuff developed for xSiteable version 0.95+ will be part of this new framework. Here is the rundown;

  • Support for DocBook documents, xSiteable templates and content, MARC XML (which is exciting to all the librarians out there!), and Topic maps (using CSXTM).
  • Conversion tool : MARC XML to Topic maps which I'm personally very excited about. I have basic support already finished.
  • Small-scale cache machine support for PHP (and Java, C# and Python close behind) making it really scalable and flexible.

The most important and exciting part of this framework is that I can now create fully dynamic sites based on sets of MARC XML records. The project that triggered this is a smaller folklore project where I was handed a set of MARC XML records with annotations. Not only can I now display info about this set, but show off the synergetic effects of putting them into a Topic maps instead of a traditional RDBMS. My prototype is looking really good, and I'll share more info here as I go along.

For librarians : If anyone wants to join me in my quest for a MARC XML => Topic maps brigde, please drop me a line. What is needed the most is an MARC compatible ontology.
