With the Student Innovation Fellowship program –  SIF for short – I’ve been working on the Hoccleve archive and making a lot of progress for adding in a search functionality.

While working with my teammates, we’ve created updated XML files to be used along with the site loading the poem dynamically! After adding the Foundation 6 library for styling we now the poem lines actively categorized in alternating background tones (easier for the eyes).

Our next target is to properly get the data structured in a JSON format and get that working with our current means of data parsing that we recently had working with the XPath library.

In short, I’m having fun and learning new skills that will in fact aid in future projects, and I have SIF to thank for that.
