SynopsX A Lightweight Xquery-Based Framework to Easily Publish and Expose XML Corpora

Abstract : Various approaches have been proposed to publish TEI corpora on line, but no standard software solution has emerged yet. As a possible next step after the markup of an edition, publication is still a difficult issue for many projects in Digital humanities. Initiated by the Digital humanities network of ENS Lyon (Atelier des Humanités Numériques), SynopsX is a lightweight framework which aimed is to easily publish and expose XML corpora. It’s a full XQuery web application built with the native XML database BaseX. The sources of the project are published under GNU on GitHub ( SynopsX has been conceived as a scalable and easily customizable solution for XML publication of TEI files. It allows full control on the URL scheme to build real REST applications and we are planning to use it to expose XML corpora in the Linked Open Data. The software brings a templating system for various renderings of resources according to predefined or customized mappings from XML data to output formats. As different partners were involved in the development, three principles have guided the conception of the software : collaboration, mutualization and genericization. At least from this point of view, we can say that SynopsX is a fruitful exemple of non-institutionnal collaboration around the building of an open source software in the field of the TEI.
