Project

CollateX, 2008-2009. Development project initiated, conceptualized and run by me to deliver the first proof of concept prototype for the Interedition project (cf. http://brandaen.huygens.knaw.nl/?p=88). CollateX is a collation tool for texts, a webservice that infers how one line of text was altered into another. It’s not one of the numerous instantiations of the well known Diff algorithm, but rather a rules guided diff that encompasses heuristics of authorship. CollateX’s beta is up at http://collatex.huygensinstituut.nl. Release 1.0 is up at http://collatex.sourceforge.net/ (Role: project leader/manager, consultant, developer.)
