    v1 v1  
     1This page is to document the set of design principles and requirements regarding ways of accessing OpenGuides data in a global context - ie without needing to know which guide it should go in. This is more details of what is discussed in #64.
     2
     3= What are the goals? =
     4
     5 * search for a place globally - automatically be redirected to the appropriate guide
     6 * Editing/browsing interface
     7 * Global API interfaces
     8 
     9= How should they be implemented? =
     10
     11 * portal.openguides.org running a completely separately codebase to integrate requests and searches and distribute them to guides using an open API
     12 * cache results?
     13 * Dedicated OpenGuides server possibility - Dom has hardware to be set up
     14 * Integration into http://openguides.org/ ([source:website redesign/replace this website])
     15
     16= What is required of the OpenGuides codebase? =
     17
     18 * Standard styles as a base
     19
     20= What challenges need to be met? =
     21
     22 * How do we cope with coverage where there is no existing guide?
     23   * Single global guide that can have data siphoned off it if someone wants to create a more specific guide?
     24 * Existing global special purpose guides? (eg engineer.openguides.org)
     25 * Vaguely consistent, but adaptable branding/styling so that people don't get completely confused
