Spotlight Resource Indexer for IIIF manifests or collections. A Rails engine gem for use in the blacklight-spotlight Rails engine gem.


Add this line to your blacklight-spotlight Rails application's Gemfile:

gem 'spotlight-resources-iiif'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install spotlight-resources-iiif

Then run the engine's generator:

$ bundle exec rails generate spotlight:resources:iiif:install


This is a Rails engine gem to be used along with blacklight-spotlight, another Rails engine gem used to build exhibits sites while leveraging the blacklight Rails engine gem.

This gem adds a new "Repository Item" form to your Spotlight application. This form allows curators to input one or more URLs to a IIIF Manifest or collection, and the contents of the feed will be harvested as new items in the Spotlight exhibit.
