I spent some time on Lenya thinking about TEI. What I did not get on to
is the business of tailoring the web-based editing widgets to grok TEI
markup, but I am sure it's possible. When this is done, the workflow
a) the web-based editors give you a little word-processor, with icons
for bold and italic and lists and headings. Thats OK
for writing trivial documents, but it may not be up to generated and
maintaining seriously rich markup. You cant edit Hamlet
using this :-}
b) you would have, I think, to ditch the TEI header and let Lenya take
control of all that. This may or may not be acceptable.
c) you may want to replace the authentication/authorisation mechanism
d) the storage is just versioned files on disk on the web server.
not any sort of database or version control system. this bothered me.
I'm currently thinking of Lenya as not well-suited to scaling up across
But maybe I misjudge it.
Oh, and its all Java and servlets, of course, so it'll crash every day
with 1000 lines of useless stack trace,
like all servlets I ever see....
