TemaTres Open Source Vocabulary Server
November 3, 2015
The latest version of the TemaTres vocabulary server is now available, we learn from the company’s blog post, “TemaTres 2.0 Released.” Released under the GNU General Public License version 2.0, the web application helps manage taxonomies, thesauri, and multilingual vocabularies. The web application can be downloaded at SourceForge. Here’s what has changed since the last release:
*Export to Moodle your vocabulary: now you can export to Moodle Glossary XML format
*Metadata summary about each term and about your vocabulary (data about terms, relations, notes and total descendants terms, deep levels, etc)
*New report: reports about terms with mapping relations, terms by status, preferred terms, etc.
*New report: reports about terms without notes or specific type of notes
*Import the notes type defined by user (custom notes) using tagged file format
*Select massively free terms to assign to other term
*Improve utilities to take terminological recommendations from other vocabularies (more than 300: http://www.vocabularyserver.com/vocabularies/)
*Update Zthes schema to Zthes 1.0 (Thanks to Wilbert Kraan)
*Export the whole vocabulary to Metadata Authority Description Schema (MADS)
*Fixed bugs and improved several functional aspects.
*Uses Bootstrap v3.3.4
See the server’s SourceForge page, above, for the full list of features. Though as of this writing only 21 users had rated the product, all seemed very pleased with the results. The TemaTres website notes that running the server requires some other open source tools: PHP, MySql, and HTTP Web server. It also specifies that, to update from version 1.82, keep the db.tematres.php, but replace the code. To update from TemaTres 1.6 or earlier, first go in as an administrator and update to version 1.7 through Menu-> Administration -> Database Maintenance.
