Pangloss - a multilingual web-based glossary.
use Pangloss; # there's much more to it than that, of course...
Pangloss is a terminology management system who's goal is to help translators produce consistent translations of common terms across multiple languages. The system allows users to search through and manage terms and their translations.
There are 4 main types of users:
Admins can create, remove, or modify user accounts, languages, categories, concepts and terms.
Translators can submit & modify term translations for a given concept.
Proofreaders can accept/reject/etc. term translations by modifying a term's status.
Other users can search through the terms, but cannot modify any content.
Pangloss can be broken down into these parts:
In MVC terms, Pangloss::Application and its sub-components form the model of the system. It includes exception-handling and validation code for collections of the following objects:
Any action by the application classes results in a view of the system represented by a Pangloss::Application::View.
Pangloss::WebApp acts as the controller of the system. It takes in a request and passes it through a Pipeline of modules that talk to the Pangloss::Application to figure out an appropriate response. Most of the so-called business logic sits at this level.
By default Petal templates are used to present the application view to the user.
Pangloss has an off-line administration tool, pg_admin.
For detailed installation instructions, see Pangloss::Install or the INSTALL file.
