A toolbox and web application for working with and presenting textual material from Shakespeare to Schopenhauer, and letters to literature.

branch: gh-pages
README.md

Textus is an open-source platform for presenting and working with cultural and historical texts.

As of March 2013 Textus is undergoing a substantial refactor into smaller components. Please see the website for details.

Textus represents the evolution of more than 6 years of software development, building as it does on the OpenShakspeare platform (which powered http://openshakespeare.org from 2005 until 2011) and the OpenCorrespondence system (which powered http://opencorrespondence.org since 2009).

Quick getting started guide, this is the version on beta.openphilosophy.org

  • Install Node.js and NPM (Node Package Manager) and ElasticSearch
  • Configure and run an ElasticSearch server, making note of the connection protocol, port and host.
  • In a shell:
    • git clone git://github.com/okfn/textus.git
    • cd textus
    • npm install
    • node src/server.js --help
  • Call 'node src/server.js' with appropriate options (see the message returned from the help option)
  • Point your web browser at localhost on whatever port you've configured for Textus (defaults to 8080 if not specified).
