Wiki pages about creating web content using Gramps

Interactive web apps

Gramps Web is a web app developed by the Gramps community that allows to collaboratively edit a Gramps family tree database using the same code base as Gramps Desktop. It can be snychronized with Gramps Desktop via an addon and can import and export genealogical data in all formats supported by Gramps.

Inactive Projects

Data Scrapers

Data Scrapers poll web sources for importable data. They recognize structured data in one source and crosswalk it to the corresponding data structure in a destination. (The destination could be a file format... Like GEDCOM... or an application... like Gramps.)

Finding Aids

Finding Aids do contextual lookups of structured data in a database in another system. Like might be looking up a person by given name, surname and years of birth/death; or by an archived reference ID.
