Frontend/API Meeting 2021-01-28

Participants: Stefan Eichert, Nina Brundke, Alexander Watzinger, Bernhard Koschicek, Christoph Hoffmann


  • Try out new meeting protocol workflow: Nina commenting live and all checking at end
  • First external pull request
  • Status of application: needs refactoring
  • OpenAtlas needs a dedicated server because at the moment instances are too distributed and cumbersome to manage, see #1446 -> Discussed: possible size of servers (8TB with different back up strategy or bigger server?), SysAdmin, ACDH-CH/ARZ/Hetzner (generally preferred: Hetzner), costs, other possible solutions, what happens after project ends, possibility of a image server for high resolution pictures to provide frontend/backend problems (prosponed until (at least) summer)/rescale high resolution pictures (on demand/in general)


  • Standard article Jan. 2021
  • Changing to a new map provider as one of the outcomes of the Standard article
  • Two new THANADOS-cooperation with German projects (Jena/Bamberg)

Roadmap 2021

  • Planning of a general Frontend and API roadmap and a CONNEC specific Frontend in the light of Leeds presence in July 2021. MoByz will need one too -> Minimal: a map as an overview, several languages, not just read only for backend
  • Frontend workshop to how the frontend should look like for different disciplines (history, archaeology, etc.) -> which connections between which data is crucial for which discipline in general? Hackatlon? Organization: Bernhard Koschicek, within the next 2 to 3 weeks (Doodle)
  • External references for types - needed as important THANADOS outcome

New feature requests

  • #1443 - THANADOS, CONNEC: List view for entities missing a specific type -> other topics more relevant for THANADOS at the moment
  • #1457 - CONNEC: Public notes
  • #1456 - SHAHI: Objects outside of archeological context
  • SHAHI: They need different locations for place of origin and current location but this maybe solve able with already implemented features.

API Features (discuss roadmap)

  • #1402 API: CSV export in API (not only CSV but also markdown of single entities and more)
  • #1382 API: Other jsonld mappings beside linked-places (couldn't find suitable alternatives)
  • #1426 API: display image smaller size (needed for frontend if images are large)
  • #1184 API: add additional output format RDFS
  • #1047 API: Import geometries
  • Error message regarding older versions: to be announced -> 310 Status Code
