muzz goes open source
It’s been some time since our last post and we are really happy to get back to the community with an open-source tool, Brif ! It is a boilerplate tool based on Docker and FastAPI, designed to streamline the development and deployment of IIIF compliant platforms.
The repository gives the possibility to quickly spin up an IIIF collection from a CSV database dump and the related images (hosted locally), and after some environment variables and docker-compose files tweaking.
It is possible to use a default mapping based on the same original settings as for muzz.app, based on Dublin Core. Each dataset can use a specific mapping if necessary.
The tool comes with monitoring services (Flower and PGAdmin) to monitor further your Postgres database and the tasks going through the pipeline. A minimal dashboard UI is also proposed to manage all the datasets transformation jobs and endpoints.
It is based on the pipeline implemented with muzz.app and is for now limited to the importing of CSV datasets along with their images. If you’re interested in working with XML or JSON, let us know!
With the release of this tool, we are moving our platform to a more restricted registration, and we are lowering the cost of the subscriptions to make them even more affordable.
Thank you for reading us and we hope to hear from you soon !
The muzz.app team
