e4 and Scala

Eclipse RCP Digitization Wiki Project

Jessica Thornsby

Fabian Steeg has announced that he has reached a first milestone of his project to create an Eclipse RCP digitization wiki, using e4 for the user interface (UI) and Scala 2.8 for the core and non-UI components. This wiki is for collaboratively improving the digitization of the Romansch Chrestomathy.

This first milestone features basic search and page selection, word-based edit history, and the ability to highlight the currently selected word in the original scan.

An initial beta is expected for release in the summer. Currently planned for the beta, are multi-user support and web deployment with RAP.

The project is available from github.
