Budu Saranai. I’m new here and this is my first post. First I want to congratulate the team on a job well done. You have certainly pushed the state of the art of Buddhist websites. I would like to push it further.
I’d like to know more about the internal structure of the site. Do you have an API? Or is there a granular link structure that could be used by external or related apps?
Here’s what I have in mind. I’d like to create a site that allows students of the Suttas to drill down from a high-level abstraction of the Buddha’s teaching, through summary explanations to original sources. One view of this might be a self-paced online course on Theravāda. Another might be a comprehensive web ontology of the Suttas, allowing users to submit natural-language queries.
What kind of hooks exist for these types of apps? Do you encourage outside devs to link to SC? Any plans to change the architecture of the site? Can you point me toward any public documentation of internal architecture, API or features? Thanks in advance for any help.
