Metal Toad and Kapow Launch Ken Burns America
Ken Burns America launched this week on the PBS.org website. In partnering with Kapow, Metal Toad took on the task of modifying and patching the NotreDAM Digital Asset Manager to meet the content repository and asset management goals of the project. From there, we created a lightweight client API to expose NotreDAM's data to the project's Django-based websites, built "NotreDAM Light", an asset browser for Django, integrataed Solr for search, and assisted with SEO and Django app development tasks.
Congrats to PBS, WETA, and Kapow on this exciting launch! We're happy to have been a part of the project and enjoyed seeing how far we could push NotreDAM as an asset manager.
