Description

Hi Boone - Would it be possible on the Commons to create an OHMS viewer plugin? It looks like it would need a simple iframe - but I am not sure. Cynthia would like to interface with OHMS (http://www.oralhistoryonline.org/), create an XML, and import it into a Commons site, view the metadata that was created, and jump to particular segments of the interview.

Attached below are some notes I found on OHMS site:

12.1
INSTALLING AND CONFIGURING THE OHMS VIEWER
You will need to consult the various guides for specific inform
ation regarding the installation
of
your OHMS Viewer (
http://www.oralhistoryonline.org/documentation/
), however, there are
some basic principles that we will outline here:

Identify where you
will be installing your OHMS Viewer. The
OHMS V
iewer requires a
basic LAMP
server
environment and works well in either an enterprise or
in
a third

party,
shared hosted environment
(such as Godaddy.com or Reclaim Hosting)
.

Download the latest version of t
he OHMS Viewer
(
http://www.oralhistoryonline.org/start

using
-
ohms/
)

Configure your OHMS Viewer. There are some basic steps for viewer configuration.
Most importantly, you will need to te
ll the OHMS Viewer where you will be placing your
OHMS XML files and identifying from which OHMS Repository your XML files
originated (Repository Name).

Link to the XML file from your Content Management System or website.

Some institutions are utilizin
g iFrames to embed the OHMS Viewer into systems such as
CONTENTdm, Omeka, or Wordpress.

Place the downloaded XML file in the
designated
“Cachefiles” directory identified
during
OHMS Viewer installation.

Hi Scott - Yes, I believe this is possible.

How hard it'll be depends on whether users like Cynthia need to be able to create and modify OHMS files themselves (after the initial creation). If the media file and the XML are provided to me, and they'll remain static, I think I can fairly easily write a shortcode that'll embed that specific OHMS. If we need an interface users to be able to upload XML and media files themselves, it's much more complex.

Can you ask Cynthia whether this'll be a one-off (or two- or three-off :) )?

Hi Scott - A quick ping about this. Did you ever get in touch with Cynthia to find out more about her needs? I'd like to be able to accomodate her, if possible.

She never got back to me about this, so am marking it abandoned.
