EAGLE Storytelling Application (ESA) for WordPress: Create multimedia narratives on epigraphic content

EAGLE Storytelling Application (ESA) for WordPress

The EAGLE Storytelling Application (ESA) is a tool designed by the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut. It allows users to create multimedia narratives on epigraphic content. It was created in the context of the EAGLE project, a European project which started in 2013 and aimed to connect and collect data sources and projects related to the topic of digital epigraphy, ancient history or archeology.
Being a Plug-In for WordPress the ESA allows you to embed multimedia content from a wide variety of data sources in your posts in a form of nicely drawn boxes ESA-Items. For example, you can paste a Wikipedia-URL to your text and it is rendered as a preview Box to the Wikipedia page. But It does not only extend the built-in embed (and oEmbed) functions that are well knows and beloved for working with services like Youtube, Flickr much more.
The ESA-Items are neither iframes nor are they generated with ajax or any other way that would result in API calls to the corresponding web service every time the containing post is displayed. Instead, the embedded content is stored in cache table and refreshed automatically after two weeks. That makes the items also usable for searching, drawing a map of used ESA-Items in the database and so on.
You can not only embed content as ESA-Items by posting URLs from known data sources but also search the data sources directly from the WordPress text editor.
In this way you can integrate Maps, Wikipedia Articles, Images from Wikimedia Commons and a lot of specialized data sources for epigraphy. The ESA has has a modular sub-plugin architecture which makes it quite easy for developers to add some other data sources via their Web-APIs. Thus it might be no only of interest for those who work in epigraphy or the ancient world but also for those who want to show the content of any Web-API in their blog.
Currently available Sub-Plugins are:

SIGNS OF LIFE: Welcome to the The EAGLE Virtual Exhibition!
This is a dedicated Epigraphy Virtual Exhibition to bring highlights of the EAGLE collections to the attention of a wider audience.

You shall find in it a good overview of what are Ancient Greek and Roman Epigraphy and what they deal with.

Online Critical Pseudepigrapha

 [First posted in AWOL 16 November 2010. Updated most recently 21 September 2017]

Online Critical Pseudepigrapha
 http://ocp.stfx.ca/objects/OCP/The_Application/The_Banner/img%7B0%7D@src.png
The mandate of the Online Critical Pseudepigrapha is to develop and publish electronic editions of the best critical texts of the "Old Testament" Pseudepigrapha and related literature.

Note that in a few cases it has not yet been feasible to publish the best eclectic text of a given document. In other cases the OCP edition of a document does not yet include all of the textual evidence. Readers should consult the "text status" information on the introductory page for each document to determine whether a better or more complete text exists elsewhere.

Texts should be cited in scholarly references according to the persistent URL for the OCP site (http://www.purl.org/net/ocp), rather than the address which appears in the address bar of your web browser, as this address may change in future years.
