OpenSearch widget for VuFind
This is just a rough proof-of-concept made during an eod hackathon back in 2011. Please do not use this in production, but merely as an inspiration!
Since the eod catalog is based on the popular VuFind library resource discovery system you can easily adapt this for other instances as well (or basically any other OpenSearch interface). VuFind is open source and developed and maintained by Villanova University's Falvey Memorial Library.
$eodOpenSearchin server/search.php according to your requirements.
- Copy the
server/*files to any webserver.
- Adjust client/js/jquery.eod.js according to your requirements.
- Add the
client/js/*files to your website.
- Take a look at client/index.html for integrating with your pages.
The OpenSearch interface of VuFind only returns the top 50 results. There is no paging or any chance of getting more hits.
