Note: Work on this project is still gradually ongoing. These files will be updated a couple of times through 2019 until we reach the final version.
I did the meat-and-potatoes work in Processing Java, and I've done my best to keep the code reasonably organized and decently commented. However, keep in mind I'm basically flying by the seat of my pants here. If you're planning on adapting this for your own project, some familiarity with the overrides required to use HashSets with objects in Java will be helpful.
And finally, if you find yourself asking "wait but... why?": The Documentation may help to shed some light on that whole can of worms.
|175,877||PrelingerLibr(...).zip||This is a zip of the whole Processing directory, which includes everything listed below, and all of the files which it outputs (some of the HTML and the JSON file in the "Runtime" section below).|
|88,216||Prelinger-2018-12-17.tsv||This is the raw export from the google doc.|
|42,008||ArchiveOrgResults.csv||Pinging Archive.org for the full set of tags & titles takes over an hour. In order to expedite iteration, I've included a boolean TF in makeEntriesArray.pde, where you can instead load this CSV. (NOTE! If you make changes to the TSV, you'll need to re-run the web-pinging loop and make a new one of these.)|
|1,203||PrelingerLibr(...).pde||NOTE: This and all of the other .pde files need to be in the standard directory setup for Processing programs (If you're not familiar with this, the .zip file above has everything in its right place). This is a small hub which loads the TSV file, and calls the next four functions.|
|9,293||MakeEntriesArray.pde||Parses the TSV and creates a master set of entries. (Note the boolean flag "getOnlineResults" which toggles pinging archive.org or loading the ArchiveOrgResults.CSV).|
|8,809||makeHTMLSidebars.pde||Takes the master set of Entries and generates the two HTML sidebars.|
|3,484||makeShelfJSON.pde||Takes the master set of Entries and generates the JSON file. (This file is organized via LOCATION, and is used to populate the tags below the shelf photo when you arrive at a new location.)|
|2,995||makeListHTML.pde||Creates and exports the HTML table for the List View.|
|1,557||miscStringFunctions.pde||Misc. little helper String functions, like replacing the ^ characters with commas, creating JSON pairs (etc etc)|
|611,299||index.html||Just a plain old index file. (Note: the "sidebar-stacks.html" content included in this, because it cuts down on the number of HTML requests when the site initially loads.)|
|534,566||shelves-JSON.js||A JSON file which has all of the topics and titles organized by location.|
|426,752||sidebar-alpha.HTML||The HTML for the alphabetical sidebar.|
|601,560||sidebar-stacks.HTML||The HTML for the stacks-ordered sidebar, nested in Topic Categories.|
|299,860||list.html||The list view HTML for Command-F enthusiasts. Side note: This is a standalone vanilla HTML file. It doesn't require js, jquery, and the CSS is included in the head.|
|1,835||PrelingerFileRename.pde||A small utility for renaming files sequentially into Stack-Bank-Row-Depth. Works either with incrementing bank or row (see commented-out code). Note: This script uses the Apache Commons' "FileUtils" package.|
|1,670||PrelingerContactSheets.pde||This script takes a folder of photos, and stitches them together into the full-stack composites. This is set up for the Prelinger Library's particular stack configuration (ie: 12 banks x 10 rows + some weird oversize stuff), so you'll need to modify it. Also requires Apache's "FileUtils."|
