XML/TEI Eclipse Plugin
Participant : Jean-Daniel Fekete [ correspondant ] .
The Millefeuille Platform is a Plugin for the Eclipse programming environment designed to assist historians in encoding their documents. It provides a set of mechanisms found in standard programming environments but not known by historians, including source version control (SVN), project management and asynchronous collaboration tools. The Plugin improves the standard XML editor of the Eclipse Platform with several encoding help for building multiple indexes, verifying the consistency of XML encoding based on high-level properties and dynamically apply a stylesheet to the XML encoded files. Indexes are one kind of cross-document structures that the Plugin can dynamically create from the XML structure.
The Millefeuille Platform is currently used to encode in XML/TEI a sample of the administration of France during 100 years, from just before the revolution to 100 years later. The encoding is done using a generated XML Schema based on TEI P5 (see http://www.tei-c.org/Guidelines/P5/ . It is generated with the Roma tool (http://tei.oucs.ox.ac.uk/Roma/ ).
Since September 2009, Millefeuille has been worked on actively by Cyril Masset from “Service éditorial et publications électroniques” (SEPE) of IRHT (http://www.irht.cnrs.fr/recherche/sepe.htm . It is used by several projects in the Humanities including Ethiopian studies, Renaissance studies and history of the French Administration.
