Rich data management and publishing on websites
Presented at the Stanford Web Camp 2019 (Remote presentation), May 18, 2019
Data has been growing at a rapid pace for last few decades; much of it resides on file servers. However, there is a growing need to make some of this data available over the web that may be consumed via either a web browser or via API. I will discuss managing and publishing data as first class content on websites that goes beyond displaying data as a list of files and folders by incorporating annotation, discussion, visualization and more.
This session will incorporate demonstration of powerful toolset that enables data organization and sharing via web browser, API and command line interface. These tools are now available for Drupal 8 as a set of independent modules, they include
- FolderShare - Provides a virtual file system for data management and file sharing.
- Chart Suite - Enables automatic generation of visualization from tabular data stored in csv and json files.
- Formatter Suite - Allows ability to format different data types and files.
- CILogon Auth - Supports single sign on for Higher Education organization.
