Drupal 8 end of life and future Drupal 10 release

Drupal 10 is coming in 2022 — discover what new features it is going to include, and what to do with Drupal 8 and Drupal 7 websites in relation to their end-of-life.

Drupal 7’s end of life is scheduled for November 2022, just one year from now. CALI is moving it’s D7 website to Drupal 9 by June 2022. I’m hoping Drupal becomes more like WordPress where major version updates are mostly point and click affairs with little or no need to rebuild a site.

Looking to build an open access repository? EPrints on Ubuntu 20.04 may be just the thing

EPrints is open-source software designed for building open access repositories that are OAI-PMH compliant. It is primarily used for scientific journals and institutional repositories although it can be also used as a document management system.

Eprints is one of those systems that pops up on my radar every now and then. My favorite things about it is that it’s written in Perl and it’s still in active development. This article is general enough that it will apply to just about any hosting situation.

I’ve tinkered with EPrints and it works as advertised. I suppose if academic law libraries had more support for self hosted applications we might see it in legal academia. You can find the source on Github, more info at EPrint, and try out a demo version.

Can I create a syllabus with Node-RED?

Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. It provides a browser-based editor that makes it easy to wire together flows using the wide range of nodes in the palette that can be deployed to its runtime in a single-click.
Node-RED

Here’s an idea: use the low code browser based flow design tools of Node-RED to create a syllabus of online resources. Since Node-RED can work with APIs and I have an API for CALI resources, I should be able to use Node-RED tools to design a syllabus as a flowchart through a series of resources.

I suspect there are a few missing pieces here like a program or routine to step through the flow created by Node-RED and a system from tracking results that talks to Node-RED. The pieces are likely buildable one identified. The result would be a programmed learning environment using Node-RED as a primary component.

Knowledge is Power: Open Access, Equity, and Cornell’s Land Grant Mission

In the context of a university such as Cornell, open access is often viewed through the lens of academic scholarship. But it can be, and is, so much more. Many Cornell programs further Cornell’s land grant mission by providing open access resources to the general public. A panel of representatives from some of these programs will discuss their work, its impacts, the importance of open access to their mission, and how they strive to make their respective fields more accessible and equitable through their work with open access projects.

Mattermost Platform Overview | All Communications On One Platform

The only unified solution with a shared set of platform services and a powerful UI structured around channel-based communications, checklist-based process automation, and card-based task and project management.

My biggest problem with Slack is it’s great for chat, but poor for project management. Yes I can integrate all the apps but the integrations are limited. Mattermost promises Bette project management tools and workflow management. Worth a look.
