A web content editing tool, Dreamweaver offers a graphics-based WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You GET pronounced wizzywig) and code-based user interface for the development of web pages and sites. The tool may be used to simplify the process of web site development (in comparison to creation of individual web pages), through the provision of a templating system that allows single-source update of shared code and layout across entire sites without server-side includes or scripting.
A software application that enables a user to search, manipulate and publish large SGML/XML documents. Anastasia was developed within an academic context to enable the manipulation of a single, large mark-up documents or a set of documents. It utilises two methods to interpret the structure of a mark-up document: First, it uses pattern-matching algorithms to process a hierarchical tree, similar to other XML software applications; Second, it interprets the document structure as a series of sequential 'events' which must be processed.
ArcGIS is a suite of software that comprises of Desktop GIS, Server GIS, Mobile GIS, and Online GIS. ArcGIS is a platform for building a complete geographic information system (GIS) that lets you easily create, edit, and analyse geographic knowledge on the desktop; publish data, maps, globes and models to a GIS server and/or share them online; and use them on the desktop, on the Web, or in the field.
CHET-C, or Chapel Hill Electronic Text-Converter, is a software tool designed to convert digital texts that employ standard typographic editorial conventions into EpiDoc-compliant XML files. A series of regular expressions are applied to the source document and the results are placed into a “shell file” (i.e., a template), which can be customised in advance. The regular expressions are stored in a separate configuration file to permit customisation, but this file is generated from regular expressions embedded in the EpiDoc Guidelines source files.
A structured text editor that may be used to create, edit, validate and convert XML and SGML documents. EpcEdit contains an integrated validating parser, an editor for CALS and HTML tables, an attribute editor and an element manipulation tool.
A cross-platform XML editor that may be used to create and validate XML documents and associated schema. It fully supports XSL (both XSLT and FO), DTD, Schema (Relax RNG and W3C), Database, XQuery and CSS.
Frequently updated and supported, and with a very large set of features, this software tool has proved popular with digital humanists.
PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system running on all major platforms. Support for native programming interfaces for C/C++, Java, .Net, Perl, Python, Ruby, Tcl and ODBC among others.
A Python-based XML web publishing framework which enables dynamic pipelining of XSLT transformations. Data is processed by an XML pipeline composed of several WSGI applications and middleware components.
A general-purpose high-level programming language that places an emphasis upon code readability. Python supports a number of development models, including object oriented, imperative, and functional design. It provides automatic memory management and a fully dynamic type system.
Subversion Version System (SVN) is a version control system used to control and manage multiple versions of data objects. Access and revision to objects are carefully controlled, to prevent unauthorised access and alteration.
A tool capable of transforming a collection of TEI encoded XML records into a web site. To perform the process, the tool requires a set of valid XML files, a configuration script that indicates the relationship between files and a ‘personality pack’ (CSS and image files) that determine its visual appearance.
Batch file processing
Modular XSLT structure, with special libraries for different transformation scenarios
Ability to group files for generation of indices at document and intra-document level
XSugar is a proof of concept tool for mapping textual content between a flat file schema and XML format. It performs statistical analysis to establish if transformations between the two formats are bi-directional, enabling content that has been converted into an XML format to be re-exported to the original flat file structure, or vice-versa. To validate the conversion, a schema must exist for source and destination formats, e.g. a bespoke XFlat encoded XML document that contains a definition of the structure of a class of flat files, an XML schema.
