Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] faceted browsing

Here's on more thing to take a look at... there's a project named Raven
(http://github.com/mwmitchell/raven) that one of the Scholars' Lab staff
was working on as a research project. Essentially it takes XML (tested
with VRA, EAD, and TEI) and builds out a faceted interface from a Solr
index along the lines of XTF (just not quite as painful) in a Rails
interface. You can check out a sample at http://raven.scholarslab.org/.
If you're finding that there's not a solution that's doing what you
need, this would be a great place to start building out a custom
interface with whatever language you choose.

HTH,
Wayne

Have you seen the Exhibit library (part of the Simile project at MIT)?
It provides faceted browsing along with map integration:
http://www.simile-widgets.org/exhibit/

It should be fairly easy to add to an existing project as it can consume
a pretty simple JSON format that your app could provide.

Since you're familiar with CakePHP, it would be very easy to turn
parseExtensions on in your routes.php file and provide specific views
for ".json" requests (they'd be stored in views/audio/json/index.ctp for
instance).

The Exhibit JSON format is based on some RDF concepts I believe, so if
you're into that at all, it will be doubly enjoyable. :)

Hope that helps,
Benjamin
