To ADD a Corpus:

1. Add HTML Visualization Formats if new ones are associated with the corpus. (May also create corpus, then add HVF, then go back to the corpus and edit it to select the new format(s).)

  • slug is the ANNIS slug/title for the visualization
  • Title is what we’re displaying on our screen
  • Button title is for button we’re displaying

2. Add the Corpus: Texts > Corpora > Add corpus

  • Title – The title you want on screen
  • Slug– for the url (short, no spaces)
  • URN code
  • Annis code–base 64 string for the copus url
  • Annis corpus name – the name of the corpus in ANNIS
  • Github link– for the downloads
  • HTML visualization– select the ones desired

3. Ingest data and visualizations Add Ingest (under Ingests)

To DELETE Corpus:

Click the red delete button in the lower left within the individual corpus settings (see below):

Deleting a corpus does not delete all metadata automatically. But with the next ingest everything will be removed

Other Items

Corpus Meta Items: isn’t show on front end; automatically populated upon ingest

HTML Visualizations

  • where all the actual visualizations themselves are stored
  • button to add is to add something manually– can cut and paste HTML into the box

Updating Server Where App Is Deployed

If you edit the files in GitHub and wish to pull them to the AWS server where the app is installed:

  • ssh to server with copticscriptorium authentication file
  • cd to the web application where it’s deployed
  • git pull origin master
  • .gitignore file will ignore the files on the server like the admin password; it will also assure that we do not destroy the content of the database.
