Archiving with Popper CLI
Ankan Poddar (National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, West Bengal, India)
Description: The project involves the implementation of a popper sub-command archive to create an online archive (snapshot) of the repository at any point of time and optionally generate a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). Zenodo, Figshare, Open Science Framework (OSF) and Dataverse all provide public APIs which can be used to create online archives on these services and get a DOI.
Mentors: Ivo Jiminez, Michael Sevilla
