A Phylotastic 2 project to autocomplete species names over the web. It is made available under the MIT license (see LICENSE). This project consists of three components:
initfolder contains the files necessary to set up an SQLite database.
init.sqlis the initialization script for the database. You can then run
demo-data.sqlfor really basic starting data, or you can add the names you want into the
namestable. Finally, run
regen-index.phpto (re)generate the names index. This takes a LONG time; I hope to look into faster approaches at some point.
importersfolder contains files which can help you add data from various sources. A generic DarwinCSV to SQLite script is provided, which converts a DarwinCSV file into a pipe-delimited file for input into SQLite. It's designed around http://gaurav.github.com/itis-dwca/, which requires two important processing steps:
- AcceptedNameUsageIDs need to be translated into AcceptedNameUsages.
- ParentNameUsageIDs need to be translated into Family.
distfolder contains the files you need to incorporate into your website:
index.html, which displays the drop-down list, and
autocomplete.php, which searches the local SQLite database for the autocomplete names.
