Every town has its singularities, and all of them are usually proud of their culture and history. Some of them might be famous for their cultural heritage, others for their parks or museums, but all have a fascinating history behind them. Small communities with few (IT) resources don’t have the possibility of showcasing these particularities to visitors, so most of this knowledge remains hidden. With this worldwide challenge in mind, we have created the Local Cultural Heritage Quick App, a low-code solution fostering local communities to promote their famous and unknown gems through citizens’ knowledge and digital technologies.
This talk introduces this open-source project and methodology that enable the development of a Quick App (an implementation of the in-progress W3C MiniApp standards) in a few minutes. The project (app source code and databases) is in a git repository, which anyone can reuse at no cost. The app’s database that feeds the app is separated from the application and stored and exposed from the repo.
