ScrollKeeper - An open document cataloging and metadata management system.
ScrollKeeper is a system for managing document metadata. Its primary function is
to act as a card catalog for documents, keeping track of what documents are
available, where they can be found, and various attributes of the documents
such as their language, format, subject, version, and position in a contents
list. It also manages other metadata such as document indices.
ScrollKeeper acts as a middle layer between applications and help browsers. When
applications install documentation, the documentation is registered with
ScrollKeeper. Any ScrollKeeper-aware help browser on the system can then
access this information. In this way, ScrollKeeper is a compatibility layer
which allows any help browser to interface to all the documentation on a
system, provided the package which ships the documentation registers it with
ScrollKeeper. It also removes much of the burden from application packagers
and help browser developers by providing a standard set of tools and by doing
much of the work inside of ScrollKeeper.
