Here's on more thing to take a look at... there's a project named Raven
(http://github.com/mwmitchell/raven) that one of the Scholars' Lab staff
was working on as a research project. Essentially it takes XML (tested
with VRA, EAD, and TEI) and builds out a faceted interface from a Solr
index along the lines of XTF (just not quite as painful) in a Rails
interface. You can check out a sample at http://raven.scholarslab.org/.
If you're finding that there's not a solution that's doing what you
need, this would be a great place to start building out a custom
interface with whatever language you choose.

It should be fairly easy to add to an existing project as it can consume
a pretty simple JSON format that your app could provide.

Since you're familiar with CakePHP, it would be very easy to turn
parseExtensions on in your routes.php file and provide specific views
for .json requests (they'd be stored in views/audio/json/index.ctp for
instance).

The Exhibit JSON format is based on some RDF concepts I believe, so if
you're into that at all, it will be doubly enjoyable. :)

Hope that helps,

Hi Jill,

The eXtensible Catalog (http://eXtensibleCatalog.org) provides similar
funtionality. The user interface of the XC is a set of Drupal modules, and
it runs inside Drupal, which probably the most popular PHP CMS application.

Our modules (called Drupal Toolkit), are able to harvest metadata from
OAI-PMH repositories, then process XML, save fields inside MySQL and in 
Solr.

We provided administrator interfaces, where you can decide how to
index different fields, what kind of facets do you want to build from
the fields, and -- still inside the admin interface -- you can create search
and browse interfaces, including search forms, navigationable lists, 
tempates for
results. You can interact with your ILS for circulation data or 
authentication.

You can mashup the results with additional data from external sources, like
table of contents, cover images, reviews.

The Drupal Toolkit is still in alpha release, we plan to issue the first
more stable release in weeks.

You can see more in the eXtensible Catalog screencast:
http://www.screencast.com/users/eXtensibleCatalog
(the second part is about the Drupal Toolkit).

You can download the software from here: http://drupal.org/project/xc.
If you have any question don't hesitate to contact me, or the
leaders of the project.

Regards,

Péter Király

Re: [CODE4LIB] faceted browsing

2010-02-09 Thread Alejandro Garza Gonzalez
If you are looking to build an application instead of getting an 
existing one, you can use Drupal and several modules to build it.


There are several faceted search modules available (see 
http://drupal.org/search/apachesolr_search/faceted%20search?filters=type%3Aproject_project). 



For a simple system, you can use:
* Apache Solr module or Faceted Search module for faceted search.
* Tagadelic for tag clouds
* Community Tags for... uhm, community tagging =)
* CCK to hold your content's fields
* Views to make, uhm... views of it =)
