Partially based on wordpress_rss_to_html_1.xsl.

Title: Dashboard Initiative Project summary: For data sources/feeds by the Peeragogy project, a dashboard prototype should be developed in order to provide an overview over the progress of activities, new entries, what has been done/collected so far, indicating what’s currently going on. Purpose of the project: The goal of the project is not so much to eventually operate a dashboard for Peeragogy, but to develop the machinery as a white-label, libre-freely licensed, universal, generic solution which can then be applied in other situations as well. The focus is on bootstrapping semantics, automated infrastructure and user interface. Project URL: Project topics & categories: Software / Apps / AI / IT What are you looking for help with? Beta Testing, Critiquing, Curation, Data Organization, Designing, Feedback, Prototyping What “roles/personas” are you looking for? Designer, Developer, Project Manager Help needed headline: UI/UX designers who want to prototype, data curators, beta testers Details of who you are looking for? It’s an open invitation and learning exercise/exploration which is supposed to also produce useful results. Main project image: Project contact email: Project open to: Sharing Publicly How are you currently able to compensate contributors? Looking for volunteers Date which this opportunity expires: 2021-01-16 Anything else you want to add? The coordination/progress of the project is discussed in a chat provided by Peeragogy. An earlier overview/landing page exists on A more recent proposal is this: Other UI preparations/experiments were conducted here: and there’s some other related components and inspirations. The Peeragogy project has several data sources of its own in varying quality, and the plan is to improve some of these so they’ll be available for testing/experimentation.

Many of today’s JSON APIs on the Web embed HTML in their JSON, and if such is obtained/retrieved, the conversion from JSON to XML leaves the embedded HTML double-escaped. This universal tool should de-escape the inner XML based on the element hierarchy path (similar to XPath) like the Wakelet downloader/converter does it.

Combine the generic GBA prototype 3 with the frontend of the SOS Grid prototype 3 and the boilerplate features of note_system into a common basis to build from. Video 1, video 2.

It should work with my variant of the SOS format

Includes export of private posts and comments as well as preparing redirects for WordPress URLs.

The format which includes references to sub “wakes” as well as the “cards” with their content can be downloaded recursively.

Want to use it for audio e-mail messaging convenience, so that I can upload a file with a web interface. A little bit like ownCloud/Nextcloud. Could/should get a ReST API to become a hypertext/hypermedia server that delivers resources without exposing the internal specifics of their storage, effectively acting as a resolver/mapping/abstraction. See the initial commit.

Used “xhtml_to_latex_2.xsl” to generate a printed booklet for better reading/consumption convenience.

Allow to automatically copy the current span selection to the clipboard on completion as an option.

A csv2xml converter does already exist in the automated_digital_publishing package, but it’s buggy. Therefore, I probably should write my own with proper parsing techniques based on an implicit call tree instead of trying to fix the current implementation with its state machine strategy.I started an attempt some time ago, but failed, potentially by not recognizing the linebreak as the element of highest priority or some other reason. Unfortunately, I can’t find that code any more and likely have to start anew from scratch again.

Recently, completed top-level activities were removed from the main output file (in order to keep focus on actual activities, not loads of historical entries). Still, there needs to be a way to conveniently view the completed activities separately.

Visual rendering of “waiting”/“paused”/“blocked” (red), “abandoned” (red, crossed out), “rejected”/“cancelled” (black, crossed out) would be nice.

I did a Hyperglossary prototype (code, live) for Doug@50 (50th anniversary of Douglas Engelbart’s Great 1968 Demo, but that’s trapped in the browser (Same-Origin-Policy restricts it to a server) and limited to WordPress as a source, therefore a more generalized Hyperglossary capability is needed, preferably as a standalone program, that can apply any glossary in a compatible format onto any target text that’s in a compatible format.

Towards the use of the same input file for both, the glossary input and the base text input, therefore enabling the hyperglossarization of existing XHTML webpages that come with an unaugmented glossary.

The last release of the “Change Tracking Text Editor 1” in a practical scenario requires the user to manually copy files around, so a new version should introduce dialogs to select input sources and output targets

When opening a plain text file that ends with a linebreak and immediately leaving/saving, the import adds additional whitespace to the add instruction.

This is a one-time manual process as I’m too lazy to adjust the wordpress_retriever_1 workflow a little to incorporate the publication date in the file name and import the text to a revision history.
