Beit-Hatfusot Front-End README

Welcome to the frontend of the museum of the jewish people. The code is in Javascript using Angular 1.4.x and licensed under AGPLv3. Please feel free to fork and send us pull requests.

Our distant backend is the system known as BHP, an ancient Windows based client-server software still used by our team of editors, volunteers and museum visitors. Our direct backend is an API server written in Python using Flask, accessing data in a Mongo & ElasticSearch cluster. The cluster is filled with data from BHP using our migration bot.
