    @mekarpeles so, I have added the first book to the list: https://openlibrary.org/works/OL1810107W/Beowulf
    What needs to happen is for the solr index to pick up the new subject :) https://openlibrary.org/subjects/long_now_manual_for_civilization is currently emtpy, so going through the work ids, adding the subject and forcing solr to reindex would be a good task to work on

    @mekarpeles also seeing that the availability api does not know about some of these books e.g. https://openlibrary.org/books/OL8811473M/Everything_You_Know_About_Sex_Is_Wrong

    Taking a look
    Charles Horn
    @hornc
    the subject list has a few more works indexed now
    Charles Horn
    @hornc
    just created a work for this previously orphaned edition on the list: https://openlibrary.org/works/OL17789333W/Fetish_Sex

    @mekarpeles: quick question: I see iiify/static/mirador.js and iiify/static/.mirador.js. What's the deal here?
    (= where do I insert some ugly hacks for a proof of concept annotation drag&drop UX?)
    aeschylus
    @aeschylus
    This was hacked together. It is all expendable.
    It's likely just the result of an errant keystroke.
    Let me poke around here.
    Gerben
    @Treora
    yes I'm poking around in those
    aeschylus
    @aeschylus
    :+1:
    I think the drag and drop code is probably best as a separate file with a tiny API that gets called from that static template
    Gerben
    @Treora
    It would be cleanest as a separate plugin indeed, but I'm not sure if it can be easily done without modifying mirador's internal code
    aeschylus
    @aeschylus
    Possibly not, but as the author of Mirador, perhaps I can be of assistance.
    :smile:
    Can you talk me through the interaction a little bit and I can point you to any hidden methods that may help?
    Mirador actually has a rather extensive API and event system.
    It's just horribly/not documented
    This older version also happens to be having some problems in chrome now, after some update or other.
    In particular this extra plugin code that was written for the original annotation demo I was showing this morning.
    Gerben
    @Treora
    My first idea was to start from the annotation cross-linking you demoed, and make it easier to create such links: an annotation could be draggable onto another one in another document, creating the link when dropped
    It's just an idea though, and might be a bit too many steps at once
    aeschylus
    @aeschylus
    I don't that's too much. we should probably figure out how the cross-links work again though.
    I don't actually think I can create one with the current code.
    Gerben
    @Treora
    It looks like the current code is not the one running live.
    aeschylus
    @aeschylus
    Oy!
    Let me try to find mek
    Gerben
    @Treora
    e.g. a grep for 'xAnnotate' returns nothing, which is the button in the bar (button is not present in my local version either)
    Ryan Pon
    @ryanpon
    second one should actually be .json
    Charles Horn
    @hornc
    thanks everyone! that was great. I am going through the json list and adding the rest of the works to the list and creating works for orphans
    Lots of follow up work for me to do merging duplicates and ensuring the best editions are surfaced on the UI
    Gerben
    @Treora
    Was nice indeed. I did not get much further than reading and poking code, but that's how things start. Would love to push some of our ideas further some time. I'll be in SF 15-24 October, happy to meet up for more hacking then!

    @mekarpeles
    Thanks everyone it was a new experience trying to coordinate a project with all of our friends remotely! I'm really grateful for everyone's patience. I will send some follow-up information to everyone who attended so we can all follow up and continue to build momentum on our progress
    Great to have you be apart of this Neal, Charles, Gerben et al
