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.

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.

Updating Drupal core via Composer 

To understand how Composer manages Drupal dependencies, see Using Composer with Drupal. To decide if Composer is a sensible way to update, compare the available options.
For convenience, these instructions include the Drush commands necessary to complete an update: many people find Drush quicker and easier than the web-based admin area.
If this is an existing Drupal site, where Composer has never been used before, make sure it’s ready for Composer first.

With Drupal 9 updating core with Composer is the way to go.
