Description

EULexistdb ========== EULexistdb is a `Python <http://www.python.org/>`_ module that provides utilities and classes for interacting with the `eXist-db XML Database <http://exist.sourceforge.net/>`_ (version 1.4) in a pythonic, object-oriented way, with optional `Django <https://www.djangoproject.com/>`_ integration. **eulexistdb.db** provides access to an eXist-db instance through eXist's `XML-RPC API <http://exist.sourceforge.net/devguide_xmlrpc.html>`_. **eulexistdb.query** provides a **QuerySet** class modeled after `Django QuerySet <http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.3/ref/models/querysets/>`_ in functionality. This module provides **model** and **manager** classes that can be used to connect an `eulxml <https://github.com/emory-libraries/eulxml>`_ **XmlObject** with the **QuerySet** class, in order to generate XQueries and return the results as XmlObject instances. However, configuring the XmlObject XPaths to make efficent XQueries against eXist and take advantage of the full-text index does require expertise and familiarity with eXist. When used with `Django <https://www.djangoproject.com/>`_, **eulexistdb** can pull the database connection configuration from Django settings, provides a custom management command for working with the collection index configuration index in the configured eXist database, and also provides a custom template tag that can be used to highlight full-text search matches. Dependencies ------------ **eulexistdb** currently depends on `eulxml <https://github.com/emory-libraries/eulxml>`_. **eulexistdb** can be used without `Django <https://www.djangoproject.com/>`_, but additional functionality is available when used with Django. Contact Information ------------------- **eulexistdb** was created by the Digital Programs and Systems Software Team of `Emory University Libraries <http://web.library.emory.edu/>`_. libsysdev-l@listserv.cc.emory.edu License ------- **eulexistdb** is distributed under the Apache 2.0 License.
