Reptor is a PHP application which turns a webserver into a data repository. It demonstrates the functionality of a modern data repository along the recommendations of the Research Data Alliance (RDA). All data is stored in an arbitrary filesystem or a part of it. Only a PHP enabled webserver with access to this filesysytem is necessary to run Reptor.

Currently it offers:

Untyped metadata handling by supporting several types of serialised metadata (plain text, key-value pairs, XML formats)

PID handling, independent of the used PID system (DOI, Handle, URN etc.)

Access to the object data (bitstreams) stored on the filesystem and taking care of permission management

Integration of Data Type Registries (DTR)


ResourceSync (partially implemented)
Social Media Integration (Facebook, Twitter)
