Hidos Documentation

Hidos is a command line tool and Python library for working with digital successions. Read Why try Digital Succession Identifiers for reasons an author might want to publish digital successions. For technical details, see the draft technical specification of Digital Succession Identifiers (DSI).

To create, publish and amend your own digital successions, read Getting Started.

Browsing digital successions

Some digital successions are viewable on popgen.es. But visitors can not enter a DSI to any public digital succession, analogous to users entering a URL into a web browser.

As of Oct 2022, something akin to a web browser for digital successions is not yet implemented. If you are interested in a "digital succession browser" contact Castedo Ellerman.
