Latin Diachronic Frontend
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.
Using the live web application
Currently the latest build of the
master branch is deployed via Netlify and is available at the link latin.netlify.com. You can also run and develop it locally by cloning this repository and starting a development server.
# This command will install dependencies yarn # This command will run the development server yarn start
You can use the web app in conjunction with the database using Docker, provided you have the database
files necessary in a top level folder called
data/. You'll also need Docker Compose installed. To
use both the web app and the database, run the following command:
To rebuild the frontend without restarting the database, run:
docker-compose build latin-diachronic-frontend docker-compose up -d
