What's the Status of Kettle?
Kettle is currently a proof-of-concept framework which has seen some limited real-world testing under load through its use as the underlying server-side layer for the GPII project and Fluid Engage mobile pilot at the McCord Museum in Montreal. It has not yet been documented (at all!), and APIs will changean emerging project of the Fluid community and represents a major priority for us alongside Infusion. Though it is still in early development, Kettle provides critical infrastructure for the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure's realtime personalization framework. To this end, Kettle is actively being supported and developed by a group of contributors from across the Cloud4all, GPII, and Fluid projects.
Initial documentation for Kettle is available in the GPII wiki, and further documentation, tutorials, and sample code are planned.
As part of the GPII and FLOE Projects, Kettle will be used to develop RESTful server-side data feeds and markup transformers for storing and sharing content accessibility information, user preferences, and captions.
