Django/Solr Metadata Archive Tool

As part of my code4lib presentation I (Matienzo) may demo some code that works with Digital Forensics XML and gets it into a Solr index. I've successfully thrown Blacklight on top of it, but want to extend it further, especially in terms of figuring what I can do with it and creating a straightforward UI that will represent directory hierarchies.

This would maybe be happy with an Event microservice. Mark Phillips hopes to release a Django app to this effect in April 2011.


  • Identifiers are precious
  • Ingest is forever
  • Where does rights management come in
  • Hard drives full of junk and an uncorrelated spreadsheet.


  • Command-line statistical analysis (histogram, number of distinct values, etc.) of spreadsheets.


  • Event microservice
  • GUI XSLT editors exist for MARC... how about for spreadsheets?
