Apache Annotator (incubating)

Apache Annotator provides annotation enabling code for browsers, servers, and humans.

We are currently seeking developers and community members interested in participating in the future of annotation.

Our intended focus areas are:

  • a collaborative community for creating annotation related code
  • a future for Annotator.js-based projects and plugins
  • enabling Web Annotation in Web browsers, Web Publication readers, and the servers that serve them

Apache Annotator is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
