CMS and framework for advanced web applications
Wiking Content Management System (CMS) can be used to run your web pages, but Wiking is more than that. It is a complete system for the development of highly accessible complex web applications on top of an SQL database and connectable to other web services, such as a media streaming server or RSS channels. It uses Pytis as its database backend and LCG for text formatting and HTML output.
Accessible library catalogue system including audio books and an eshop
Biblio is a highly accessible library catalog system with an integrated ordering system, eshop and support for audio books in the mp3 format. Audio books can be downloaded or listened to directly from the web portal. While random visitors can only listen to a sample of the recording, registered readers can listen to full books without any need to download, install or store anything. The system also provides an RSS channel with updates on new titles in the catalog
See example of one catalogue item – a book complete with its audio version: https://biblio.brailcom.org/biblio/catalog/12
