Welcome to Reptor!
Reptor is a PHP application which demonstrates functionality of a modern data repository. It was developed along the recommendations of the Research Data Alliance (RDA). Currently it offers:
- Untyped metadata handling by supporting several types of serialised metadata (plain text, key-value pairs, XML formats)
- PID handling, independent of the used PID system (DOI, Handle, URN etc.)
- Access to the object data (bitstreams) stored on the filesystem and taking care of permission management
- Integration of Data Type Registries (DTR)
- ResourceSync (partially)
All data is stored in an arbitrary filesystem or a part of it. Only a PHP enabled webserver with access to this filesysytem is necessary to run Reptor.
