Welcome to FisHRDB Development Page
PLEASE NOTE: THIS TRAC PROJECT WAS MIGRATED TO REDMINE AT http://redmine.scelsi.nicolabernardini.info/projects/fishrdb. AS SUCH, IT IS NO LONGER MAINTAINED]
FisHRDB is a full-blown multi-record hierarchical/relational web interface developed by Nicola Bernardini for the Fondazione Isabella Scelsi, a foundation devoted to the dissemination of Giacinto Scelsi's music. The motivation for the platform choice can be found here.
FisHRDB features multi-record data: it accomodates seamlessly normal archive records as well as multimedia records like photographs, recordings, tapes, etc. It is completely based on Ruby on Rails. These are the packages required to run it (if you pick it up from the svn repository, they should pretty much come into place automatically). INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS MAY BE FOUND HERE.
FisHRDB is Free Software licensed under the GPL 2.0 license, so you are welcome to pick it up and use it as you please. However, I have been hacking hacking hacking to date to get it ready (which it hardly is yet) and had no time to generalize, package, let alone document it. So, basically you are on your own if you want to give it a try. However, if you wish to help me in any of the tasks that I am facing right now (please check the Roadmap and the Tickets pages to have an idea of what I am currently doing. The other thing is that this software is currently very customized to the needs of the Fondazione Isabella Scelsi, and a generalization is very much needed to make it useful to anything else. Again, help is more than welcome.
To date, this project has been essentially a one-man-endeavour so the number of closed tickets is directly proportional to how much time I can spend on it. If you want to have an idea of how fast the project is going to evolve, you can check how many other things I am doing at the same time on my main Ta-da list.
