Subject Re: Proposal for Chemistry Parts
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:58:01 GMT
Were there any further developments regarding adding the SharePoint 
WebParts into Apache Chemistry? This is something I'm extremely interested 
in, as I'd like to "host" our OpenCMIS server implementation within 

Ben: if you'd like someone else to do further testing, I'd be happy to 
help. :)

I’m the developer behind that so I can give you more information.

This “package” is split into different parts:
* A CMIS 1.1 javascript lib (based on jQuery)
* On top of that, we built 2 configurable UI components (only developed 
with jQuery, HTML & CSS)
* And finally, we packaged these components in SharePoint WebParts and 
AppParts, but we tested as well Drupal and it’s potentially compatible 
with any web container.

Today, we tested that with Alfresco 4.2.x, and I tested yesterday evening 
with OpenCMIS server with the InMemory connector.

Hi Greg, 

Sounds interesting. Can you tell us something about the dependencies and 
potential licensing issues? I guess that Sharepoint is not Apache License
