Milestone: first demonstrator page

We are proud to announce the first version of our Gawati development demonstration page. We will update this page from time to time with the latest version to show what we are doing, encourage you to give us feedback to our work and to give you ideas for how you can make the most of Gawati for your own purposes.

Please bear in mind that our aim for showing you the stages of progress for our work is to keep you up to date, and is not meant to showcase the complete system.

For the first version, much work has been dedicated to advancing the behind the scene functionality. We have already created the backend storing documents and metadata, as well as a themeable frontend that produces the webpages for the interaction between the user and the backend data store.

The page demonstrates document and metadata retrieval and display, deriving secondary information from structured metadata that we show to help the user browse the data. We use a small set of 200 documents from the African Law Library that we ship with the installation for demonstration purposes.

This is also a good time for you to let us know about your impressions and any suggestions you might have on our Google Group: "Gawati General".

If you would like to jump in and look around the system we want to let you know that we are putting in a lot of effort to make starting your project with Gawati as pleasant as possible. Apart from a single command installation you can find system and development information at our Read the Docs page that we update continuously.
