NYWalker-Server

Build Status Maintainability Test Coverage Inline docs Creative Commons License GPLv3

NYWalker-Server provides an API for interacting with a rich database of places mentioned in various novels. As the name suggests, the initial focus was on novels about New York City, but the code doesn’t particularly care about New York City.

NYWalker has been used by scholars pursuing original research and by students in the classroom. A video description, showing its features, is available.

Version

Currently, a frozenish version is available via NewYorkScapes. The default branch of this distribution, however, is version 2, which is under construction. The most significant changes between version 1 and 2 is that version 2 splits the client from the server. This repository is for the server.

Contributing

Please fork and contribute.
