Home Page Options

The home page has the following links:

Read coding form:
CIVET reads a coding form template without using a workspace: this is used if you want to use the web coding form without annotated texts. This option can also be used when debugging coding forms.
Read workspace:
CIVET reads a set of text collections and their associated coding form from a zipped file: this mode allows for text annotation and extraction and is described in more detail in Section [sec:workspace], [sec:annotate] and [sec:coding].
Manage workspace:
This links to various utilities that operate on workspace files including downloading the coded data as a tab-delimited file, editing the meta-data, and adding comments to the file. [Beta 0.9: only the data download is implemented; editing the meta-data can be done in a text editor.]
Set preferences:
This goes to a page where various program preferences can be set manually.

CIVET file selection screen

This provides the following options:

Choose file:
Select a file containing a coding form template or workspace, then read this into the system by clicking the Read file button.
Any text entered here—typically a coder name or ID—will be included as metadata with any annotations or cases coded. This field is optional.
Demo file:
Read the simple demonstration files built into the system. [1]
Download demonstration file:
This downloads a template or workspace demonstration file, which can be used as an example.


[1]These files are named CIVET.demo.template.txt and CIVET.extract.demo.zip in the directory djcivet_site/djciv_data/static/djciv_data/ and can be modified there.
