DEDALO_APPLICATION_LANGS_DEFAULT string

Defines the main language will used in the user interface.

Dédalo can be translated to any language, the translations of the interface are done in the ontology. The users can change the Dédalo interface to use it in his language. In Dédalo the user interface and the data language are separated concepts and it is possible have a interface in one language and the data in other. This main language will be used as primary option and as fall back language when the element does not have the translation available.

define('DEDALO_APPLICATION_LANGS_DEFAULT', 'lg-eng');

See the Dédalo structure lang for see the languages definitions.


Defining application language

./dedalo/config/config.php

This is a dynamic parameter and it can be changed when the user login, or in application menu. When the language is changed it is saved into the user's session and it is read to maintain coherence in the diary workflow. If the user's session does not have defined the application language then Dédalo will use the application default language definition.

define('DEDALO_APPLICATION_LANG', 'lg-spa');

This parameter use the method 'fix_cascade_config_var' to calculate the value. The result of this function will be a string with the correct language value in string format. You can define it as fixed data value, but is recommended do not change the definition, if you want change the default language for the interface use the: DEDALO_APPLICATION_LANGS_DEFAULT.


Defining default data language

./dedalo/config/config.php

DEDALO_DATA_LANG_DEFAULT string

Defines the main language will used by Dédalo to manage and process data.

The main language is the mandatory language for the text data in the catalog or inventory. Dédalo is a real multi-language application, it can manage multiple translation of the textual information.

In a multi-language situation, when you require some translated information but it is not present (because it is not done), Dédalo will need to use the main language to do a fall back process to main language to show the data. If the main language data is not present, Dédalo will use any other language to show those data.

define('DEDALO_DATA_LANG_DEFAULT', 'lg-spa');

Defining data language

./dedalo/config/config.php

DEDALO_DATA_LANG string

It defines the data language used by Dédalo to process and render textual information.

This is a dynamic parameter that can be changed by the user in any moment. Dédalo is a real multi-language application, it can manage information in multiple languages and process it as unique information block (the field store any translated version of his data). The user can translate any information directly or using specific tools. This parameter define the current language used.

define('DEDALO_DATA_LANG', 'lg-spa');

This parameter use the method 'fix_cascade_config_var' to calculate the value. The result of this function will be a string with the correct language value in string format. You can define it as fixed data value, but is recommended do not change the definition, if you want change the default language for the data use the: DEDALO_DATA_LANG_DEFAULT.


Defining data language selector

./dedalo/config/config.php

DEDALO_DATA_LANG_SELECTOR bool

It defines if the menu show or hide the data language selector.

When the selector is showed the user can change the data language independently of the interface language. If the selector is hide the data language is synchronous to the interface language a change in the interface language will be a change in the data language.

define('DEDALO_DATA_LANG_SELECTOR', true);

Defining data language sync

./dedalo/config/config.php

DEDALO_DATA_LANG_SYNC bool

Defines whether the application language and data language selection remain synchronized.

When set to ' true', it forces to keep DEDALO_APPLICATION_LANG and DEDALO_DATA_LANG synchronized across changes. The default value is 'false', which allows the application language and data language to be selected independently.

define('DEDALO_DATA_LANG_SYNC', false);

Defining data without language (no lang)

./dedalo/config/config.php

DEDALO_DATA_NOLAN string

This parameter defines the tld used by Dédalo to tag data without translation possibility.

Dédalo is multi language by default, all information could be translated to other languages that the main lang, but some data is not susceptible to be translated, like numbers, dates or personal names. In these cases Dédalo defines this kind of data as "not translatable" with the specific tld define in this parameter.

By default and for global Dédalo definition for non translatable data this tld is: lg-nolan

define('DEDALO_DATA_NOLAN', 'lg-nolan');

Default variables

Defining prefix tipos

./dedalo/config/config.php

DEDALO_PREFIX_TIPOS array

This parameter defines the ontology tipos to be used in the Dédalo installation.

Every tipo (typology of indirect programming object) defines a heritage field, a data model, a structuring tools and definitions. Dédalo is a multi heritage application with ontologies for Archeology, Ethnology, Oral History, Numismatics, etc. Every project or institution can add any tipos that it demands. An archaeologic museum will use the model for archeological catalogs, but it will not need the ethnological definitions. In the same way that Oral History project will don't use the archeological or numismatic definitions.

By default Dédalo load some common tipos for all project types.

TLD Defintion
dd dedalo. Definition of default list and common uses and tools such as translation tools.
rsc resources. Definition for areas and sections commons to all projects such as people, images, audiovisual files, publications, documents, bibliography, etc.
hierarchy thesaurus. Definition for sections as toponymy, onomastic, chronologies, techniques, material, etc.
lg languages, Definition for the languages in the thesaurus (used for all application to translate data and interface)
utoponymy Unofficial toponymy. Section definition for unofficial toponymy (unofficial places names), used to add places that are not inside the official toponymy of countries or the installation don't want import the official toponymy (use to point the place without the official term in some sections as Publications, to define any place of publication around the world)

Besides, every installation can import the ontology tipo that will use in the inventory or research:

TLD Defintion
oh Oral History, the definition sections and tools to be used for oral history projects such as interviews, transcription, indexation, etc.
ich Intangible Cultural Heritage, the definition sections and tools to use for intangible heritage, such as elements, processes, communities, symbolic acts, etc.
tch Tangible heritage, the definition of sections and tools to use for tangible heritage, such as objects, collectors, informants, etc
tchi Tangible heritage immovable, the definition of sections and tools to use for tangible heritage immovable, such as archeological sites, finds, alqueries, etc
dmm Memory and documentary heritage, the definition of sections and tools to be used for the heritage of memory, such as graves, deportees, exiles, tortured, etc.
numisdata Numismatic heritage, the definition sections and tools to use for numismatics project, such as mints, types, legends, hoards, finds, etc.
isad Archives following the ISAD(g) standard (General International Standard Archival Description - Second edition), the definition of sections and tools to be used for cataloging documents with the standard structure, etc.
actv Activities, the definition of section and fields of activities as exhibitions, workshops, didactics, conferences, etc.
define('DEDALO_PREFIX_TIPOS', [ 'dd', 'rsc', 'hierarchy', 'lg', 'oh', 'ich' ]);

Thesaurus dependencies

Some tld has a thesaurus dependency, if you want to use a tch Dédalo installation will need to create the material, technique, or objects hierarchies. This hierarchies are not included into the main tld, because the hierarchies need to be activate and created by the users. See the table of dependencies.

Applying changes in DEDALO_PREFIX_TIPOS

Any change in DEDALO_PREFIX_TIPOS will need a update of the ontology, this changes are not directly applied. Dédalo needs to get the ontology tld and install it, to do that update the ontology in maintenance control panel.

Activities

The actv tld should be used as model to implement a virtual sections with more specific activities as hierarchies of toponymy does into the thesaurus using it as hierarchy20, the main section to implement in this way is actv1 and his model actv2. The virtual sections should be defined with a prefix actv into the new tld, in this way: - for exhibitions section the tld could be: actvexhibition - for conferences section the tld could be: actvconference

Defaults values are specific data to be enter into the component when a section is created, empty values are not allowed in components with default data, the component will replace empty data with default value.

Usually the component define is own defaults data into the ontology, but is possible change that in the local installations creating a config_defaults.json file in the config directory with the specific default data for your installation.

define('CONFIG_DEFAULT_FILE_PATH',    DEDALO_CONFIG_PATH .'/config_defaults.json');

Example to change the default data for the publishable component rsc279, in the ontology the component has a default value of "no" (the value is the locator to point the yes/no list, for "No" the section_id is 2). If we want to change to 'yes'(section_id 1 of the section dd64) the config_defaults.json needs to define it as:

[{
    "tipo": "rsc279",
    "type": "component",
    "tld": "rsc",
    "value": [
        {

        }
    ]
}]

If the register doesn't have new information the process is stopped for this record.

Checking the publication status prevent double, triple o more publications of the same record and all process will be faster (some records will not published), but in some cases can be useful that Dédalo don't check the diffusion state, and perform the publication process for every record has new information or no.

This property configures the publication process to check the new data status or ignore it. This property is stored into the global Dédalo $_SESSION.

$_SESSION['dedalo4']['config']['skip_publication_state_check'] = 1;
Value skip state check?
0 don't check
1 check
