We are strong believers in thoughtful and selective application of technology, and we work in close collaboration with our scholarly partners. That means the software we build is co-designed with its expert users, to support and enhance established patterns of humanistic scholarship.
We are well-versed in widely-used DH software tools, practices and standards, and we’re good at bringing innovations from other domains to bear on challenges unique to the humanities.
We never take a one-size-fits-all approach. Where we can reuse existing patterns or code, we do; where we can’t we build things from scratch. Technologies we use include:
Component-based front-end frameworks like React, to make reusable interfaces.
Mature, time-tested web frameworks like Ruby on Rails for applications and APIs.
Industrial-strength databases like PostgreSQL to keep your research data safe.
Static site generators like Jekyll for quick, secure websites that are free to host and easy to maintain
Open Standards like TEI for text markup, IIIF for images and RDF for Linked Data
If you have a digital humanities project in mind, we would love to hear about it.
