Latin Diachronic Frontend

Netlify Status

The Latin Diachronic Database is a project of Digital Humanities invented by Tommaso Spinelli (Ph.D. candidate, Classics, St. Andrews University) and co-developed with Giacomo Fenzi (Computer Science and Mathematics student, St. Andrews University). This project aims to create an innovative toolkit for the quantitative computational analysis of the Latin language as well as to support and further enhance the digital study of ancient intertextuality.

For more information on the toolkit view the original repository.

This project is an intuitive and easy to use front-end for the toolkit, developed by Jack Leslie in conjunction with the original authors Tommaso Spinelli and Giacomo Fenzi.

To rebuild the frontend without restarting the database, run:

docker-compose build latin-diachronic-frontend
docker-compose up -d
