We’re delighted to announce version 1.1 of the DHDebates platform, which includes a number of new features:
- Account creation and basic profile editing
- Commenting on sentences for anonymous and logged in users
- Display of comment counts per paragraph for the text
- JSON APIs for read-only access to the database
These features provide a number of ways for readers of the text to interact with the book. We’re especially excited about the comment system, which allows for wide-ranging dialogue in response to the texts included in the book, and we’re very excited to debut a set of APIs, which we hope DHers will use to examine reader interactions with the texts in the volume.
Please stay tuned for continued development of the platform. We’re also looking forward to debuting a set of new texts and a call for new new submissions, both coming in August 2013.
As always, we look forward to your responses and to your feedback on these new features.
