Asthma Files Site
A collective inquiry in to complex conditions. Development sponsored by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
The "Asthma Files Site" add-on for Plone is a research tool, currently in use by RPI but available to anyone doing similar research. It features Dexterity content types and a Collective Cover integration to enable the creation of an "Asthma File": a collectively developed document containing artifacts and annotations.
To install "Asthma Files Site" functionality on your Plone site, add rpi.asthma_files_site to your list of Plone "instance eggs" in your buildout.cfg file. Run Buildout and restart Plone. Create a new Plone site with the add-on selected:
Or add the functionality to an existing site:
After installation, you should be able to add 6 new content types:
Follow these steps to begin using the "Asthma Files Site" functionality in your Plone site.
Add a Question
Questions facilitate Annotations of Artifacts when researchers respond to them in context. Before you do anything else, add an Asthma Question to your site.
An "Asthma File" is produced via the assembly of artifacts and annotations. So next, add some artifacts to your site. E.g.:
Currently only OGG audio supported
Currenly only OGG video supported
Create an Asthma File
Now we can create an Asthma File, which is a collaborative document consisting of multiple Artifacts, Annotations, etc. Made possible via the use of Collective Cover. 
|||Catch 22: We'd like to customize the available types for Cover, but they don't exist until we install ourselves first. Workaround: customize TTW e.g.|
