  • Texas A&M University Libraries has been using VIVO in production since 2015. In that time, we have come up with many creative solutions to meet the needs of our users. In early 2019, we began developing a replacement front end for the VIVO interface to formally address campus demands here at Texas A&M University. Initial requirements: * Align the technology stack as much as possible with the existing VIVO stack to assist with implementation by others if they choose especially smaller libraries. * The majority of the front end is customizable by others. * Read only UI. No updating back to the triple store. * All data is retrieved via a REST API endpoint using Spring Data for Apache Solr. * 100% Search Engine Optimization. IE: A person / crawler can disable JavaScript and still have the same experience. Server side, and Client side rendering if needed.
