The Metadata Your Patrons Want To See: How It Gets To You And What It Is

The development of Readium-2

The iOS SDK – written in Swift 3 – is now tested by several people. This is an agile development, with frequent iterations. The Android SDK – written in Kotlin – has started, and we expect first results by the end of the year. The Desktop version – written in Typescript – is also in active development at EDRLab. It aims at building a node.js SDK plus developing an end-user product named Readium Desktop, which will replace the Readium Chrome app in early 2018. And the Go version of a Readium-2 “streaming service”, the first developed, is already in production.
