Thanks for writing, mogoh!

Many of us in the Annotator.js community are working on (re)building community and code at http://annotator.apache.org/

The primary objective is to build both a healthy, long-lasting community around annotation and to build the libraries and tools to make working with annotations easy for developers.

We do not (as yet) have something like Annotator.js' "kitchen sink" (and are unlikely too). Our objectives instead are focused on building the libraries that make building one's own kitchen sink much simpler while still  building on a shared foundation of libraries and tools.

We also plan to build migration tools for bringing over content from annotator-store installations and migrating them to the Web Annotation Data Model for serving via Web Annotation Protocol servers (which we'll also be building.

We'd love to have you join us there if you're interested! Additionally, just writing up what you're wanting to accomplish with annotation and sending that to the dev at annotator.incubator.apache.org mailing list would help use scope the project.

Hope to see you there!

Subject: [annotator-dev] Has development stopped?


I am interested in using Annotator but it seems that the development has stopped. The latest commit ist from 2015-11-14 [1]. There are a lot of open issues and open pull requests.

So I am wondering if I should stick to the latest stable version (for ever)?

Or is there some active fork of Annotator?

Or some other alternative?

kind regards
