The Fabulator is a way to build interactive applications within Radiant. I’m using it as the framework for building several DH projects this semester that work with transcriptions of textual artifacts. I just pushed a set of changes that allow the fabulator applications to traverse the page hierarchy and access page content (for example, ‘radiant::/@title’ gives the title of the home page). This means that we can manage TEI documents as pages in the CMS and still process them to extract information for a database, all within the CMS.
