Scope & Objectives

The goal of this working group is to create a new, single UI for DSpace that implements all functionality currently available in JSPUI and XMLUI.  The interface will interact with DSpace core data through the REST API to insure complete separation of the user layer from the data layer. It will be built as a modern responsive client side web application using Angular 2.


Implementation of the interface and the REST API with code delivered on GitHub along with documentation on how to use, install, and extend the interface.

Meeting Times & Communication Channels

Frequency of meetings will be every other week, unless modified by the facilitator.  Initial meetings may be more frequent. The working group have two sub-area of interest, the angular 2 UI itself and the build of the new REST API. The meeting will typically run for two hours one dedicated to the Angular 2 UI aspects and one hour to the REST API. The community is welcome to attend one or both meetings as by their interest.

The group will use the standard DSpace lists to communicate about both areas.  When using a shared channel, start the subject line with “[new-UI]”, "[new-REST]" or something similar to distinguish content.

Meeting Notes are posted to the wiki below.

The facilitator for the Angular 2 UI is: Art Lowel (Atmire)

The facilitator for the new REST API is: Andrea Bollini (4Science)
