Welcome to the Behind-the-Scenes Portal for the Miranda Digital Asset Platform. This portal has been created to help those interested in learning about the human and technical development processes that make the Miranda project possible. The Miranda prototype was made public in fall 2017, with an alpha release in May 2018 and a beta launch in January 2019. We will continue to work on and update the platform iteratively.

On the portal, there is information about what is currently available on the Miranda beta with some notes on directions for further development and improvement. For technical (and technical-leaning) folks, there is also information on how the platform itself works, how to interact with the platform's APIs, and data import processes.

All of the platform code will be linked here by the project's conclusion. However, we regret that we cannot provide technical support for other installations of the platform besides the official site. The code repository for the 2017 Miranda prototype client and the prototype server is hosted on Github. Our primary technical partner is ParsonsTKO. The Miranda project is made possible with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Miranda is a work-in-progress, and we invite questions, comments, and ideas about how we can improve it or how it might relate to a project you are working on. Send us an email at miranda@folger.edu.
