Weeknotes: Open correspondence

A quiet week as I’ve been having a few days off but I’ve been working on some of the tickets for Open Correspondence.

The urls have changed to /letters/view/<author>/<correspondent>/<letter id> in an attempt to make them more user friendly and also to allow the user to define smaller or larger collections by altering the url. There is also some basic content negotation to expose the data in json, xml and rdf as well as html.

I’ve been trying to use the linked data api specs to make that the site operates as a service as well. Multi-tasking really.

One of the next things to do is to develop graphical features for the correspondent pages and to sort out the RDF with rdflib. Think I’ll try to do that next week though.
