    eww ... not the look I intended. :)

    hey it's about time they had json support in mysql
    that's great
    I'm all for keeping things in Mongo as is
    Meteor has a database included by default
    has mongo
    but now that the api supports querying individual chunks, it could go either way
    I guess conceptually it helps me think about a portion of the api for the sole and only purpose of feeding data to the frontend
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    as something coming from a mongo database
    but for our deadline by the 13th, I'll try to make everything work just from the files first

    @lukehollis and @ferthalangur -- really interesting conversation for me to follow. I am fairly agnostic about backend … if optimization is a chief goal, from early on, then the Postgres-JSON way is intriguing.
    In my past experience writing an API, the chief struggle is hammering out the ugly details surrounding the URL + data objects. If we can do this well, I think we'll set up for success regardless

    yeah! I think that's the truth!

    Any thoughts on where the converter for Scansion information to HTML might go?
    (which repo it might fit into)
    need to span syllables to display scansion info
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    Should a chunk correspond to its own unit of text? (e.g. <p>?)
    Kyle P. Johnson
    @kylepjohnson
    Hey Luke! Thoughts about scansion info: How long will this take to run on the entire corpus? If fast, then we can do it dynamically each time the corpus is loaded. If slow, then I am good with adding it to its respective Perseus dir. (Note: the JSON cleaned up JSON that I am adding to the cltk_api repo will soon be moved into either the greek or latin Perseus dir. But don't worry, I will take care of this.)
    That's a good question about chunking. For book-line, this is easy: each line will always be wrapped in a <p> tag. For book-chapter-section and book-chapter, I believe we will be following Perseus's website to wrap chapters in <p> tags. In addition to this, I retained newline markup \n when it occurs w/in a chapter (ie, this can happen for a very long chapter that some editor decided to break into two to improve reading.)

    Am I understanding your right on this? If so, sound reasonable?
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    Ahhh, yes that makes a lot of sense! Thanks!
    Re: scansion, once we have the scansion information from Tyler's work, we could try running it dynamically if you think it'd be easier!
    I think it'd be time consuming enough that at some point we would want to save the result in mongo somehow
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    Oh, hey, are you thinking we should snag a domain or use a subdomain of cltk?
    either's totally fine with me
    (just udpating the domains on our fonts--don't need to know right away)
    cltk.org and *.cltk.org can now use the following fonts by linking this: <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="http://fast.fonts.net/cssapi/6136222a-0003-4a3f-a34f-e3ed83632dd3.css"/>
    font-family:'Proxima N W01 Thin Reg';
    font-family:'Proxima N W01 Light';
    font-family:'Proxima N W01 Xbold';
    font-family:'Proxima N W01 Black';
    font-family:'Museo Sans W03_100';
    font-family:'Proxima Nova A W07 Thin';
    font-family:'ProximaNW01-AltThinReg';

    Low does api.cltk.org sound? I can set this up later today
    How* does
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    Sounds great! What are your thoughts for a domain/subdomain for the frontend meteor app?
    Kyle P. Johnson
    @kylepjohnson
    Even better question! app.cltk.org ? I want to hear your ideas!
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    Yeah sounds good
    I'm all for it
    Kyle P. Johnson
    @kylepjohnson
    Rad. In due time my hope is that the cltk.org landing page will be your app :)
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    Oh okay wow that sounds great
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    I'm hoping to have something to standup tonight--would it be alright to put it up on the digital ocean server?
    can put it behind basic auth if that'd be better for now!
    Kyle P. Johnson
    @kylepjohnson
    Wow that's so c
    ... Exciting. I don't think we need auth, but your choice. Sure put it on the same server for now. I will research how we might serve these later
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    awesome--will do--I think we just need mongo and node 10.40
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    uggg all the art for "classics" is classic cars!
    Kyle P. Johnson
    @kylepjohnson
    Ha I love that.
    Luke's work can go on this server for now, too. When it's time to put them on separate servers, we can point it to, eg, app.cltk.org
    Luke Hollis
    @lukehollis
    awesome!
    okay, I have node on the server
    and mongo was already installed
    i typically run meteor behind nginx
