Some projects made with CubicWeb:
The data.bnf.fr portal is developed with CubicWeb and displays records for books, authors, themes, etc. The information comes from the Catalogue général (main catalog), several internal sources or Wikipedia. It can be viewed in HTML, JSON or RDF. data.bnf.fr contains more than one million of records.
France Archives is a portal developed with CubicWeb that integrates the resources from the national archives and the numerous French local archives services. The base contains millions of records.
The first version of datapoc.mnhn.fr is a proof-of-concept portal gathering comprehensive information about naturalists that can be found in the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN). CubicWeb has been used to retrieve data from various sources and implement alignment algorithms in order to get a unique access point to previously siloed information.
The Napoleonica Les Archives website provides an access to the digitised archival collections related to Napoleon and his contemporaries. CubicWeb manages the collection documents and offers an intuitive search service.
