Welcome to the EasyDeposit PHP client!
Version: 1.0

The EasyDeposit client is a PHP powered configurable SWORD repository deposit
client. The client can be easily configured to allow you to create a custom
deposit interface for your repository. 'Steps' can be added or removed from
the client to tailor it to your own requirements, new custom steps can be
easily created, and the look and feel of the client can be easily changed
by editing the CSS and header and footer files.

EasyDeposit was originally written by Stuart Lewis (stuart@stuartlewis.com) at
Edinburgh University Library / The University of Auckland Library.

The library is licenced with a BSD licence. See the file LICENCE in the
distribution directory.

The software is based on the CodeIgniter platform:

  - Please read codeigniter-license.txt for terms of use.

Also included with this distribution are copies of mootools, silkicons, and

  - Please read mootools-licence.txt for terms of use.
  - Please read silkicons-licence.txt for terms of use.
  - Please read tinymce-licence.txt for terms of use.

EasyDeposit was written using PhpStorm:

SWORD Compatibility
This version of the library is compatible with SWORD version 1.3,
with draft support for SWORD v2.  However, since EasyDeposit is
a 'fre and forget' tool for single deposits (it does not support
additional future interactions with the deposits), SWORD v1
offers the same functionality.

This library requires:

 - PHP version 5
    + CURL extension
    + SimpleXML extension
    + ZIP extension
    + LDAP module (only if you wish to use LDAP authentication)
