This blog post introduces the first of the two: Right-click deposit by Kim Shepherd. The project proposal aims to:
Create a configurable Windows SWORD v2 client which offers quick access to repository deposit via the Windows right-click context menu.
It would be developed with a focus on easy and non-intrusive installation to allow easy large-scale deployments. It will be designed to take advantage of the familiarity most Windows users have with right-click menus and actions, so that users do not have to learn how to use “yet another app”.
Some usage examples include:
- Pre-configure repository/collection settings and deposit any file with one click
- Configure repository settings and select collection at time of deposit
- No configuration, select all options at time of deposit
- Configure a range of deposit profiles which can be selected via the context menu
We’ll post updates on this blog as the project develops.
