Now its possible to search/filter by tags in a non-case-sensitive way and taking into account internationalization.

The catalogue service of ViSH can work now using the enhanced ‘matchtag’ mode.
The wiki has been updated with instructions to set up the catalogue to work in this mode: https://github.com/ging/vish/wiki/Setting-up-a-ViSH-instance:-The-application_config.yml-file .

Workshops: new educational resources for ViSH!

We are happy to announce that the first version of the Workshops (https://github.com/ging/vish/issues/89) has been finished and deployed at http://vishub.org.

A live example of a Workshop can be seen here: http://vishub.org/workshops/1 .

This new educational resource allows to design full learning experiences using other ViSH resources such as interactive presentations, videos and so on.

New enhancements will come with future ViSH releases.
