    1. fundamentally

      You know what would be nice? If one was able to annotate outlines like these.

    1. Now that step is no longer necessary. What’s changed? We used to use the URL as the primary identifier of PDFs. That’s what the Hypothes.is client would search for in the database to anchor annotations on a page. Now we use the digital fingerprint that is baked into PDFs from their generation as part of the spec for the format. We did use this fingerprint previously as a secondary identifier to map local PDFs to hosted ones or PDFs hosted at different URLs to each other, which is what caused the lag between new annotation creation and appearance of pre-existing annotations. This shift from URL to PDF fingerprint will truly enhance the portability of annotations on the format across the web.

      Evolution of the implementation.

    1. The tool uses Docker Compose to connect various Docker containers, including Selenium Chrome, Firefox and python workers which connect with either Chrome or Firefo, a Redis instance for storing shared state, and a web app for handling user requests.  Using the docker compose scale feature, the number of Chrome and Firefox workers can be scaled dynamically as needed.

      More technical specifications.

    2. While initial plans suggested using PhantomJS as the headless browser, it was decided to automate real browsers (Chrome and Firefox) through Selenium instead. The reasons for this are two-fold: The availability of ready-made Docker images for Selenium made setting up a headless Chrome and Firefox much simpler. Second, due to the complexity of many sites, using real browsers would result in the most accurate archive of the user experience of a web page and avoid any subtle differences that may occur in PhantomJS vs Chrome or Firefox. By using Selenium, support for additional browsers, including PhantomJS, can also be added as needed.

      Reasons for some of the technical decisions.
