Scalar joins the Reclaim Installer Party

We’re super excited to announce that Scalar is now available to all Reclaim Hosting users and institutional partners via our automated installer in cPanel! Scalar is a free, open source authoring and publishing platform that’s designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form, born-digital scholarship online. Scalar enables users to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways, with minimal technical expertise required. Scalar joins Omeka and Known in the family of application installers developed by Reclaim Hosting. We’re committed to making educational applications available in open and accessible ways to larger communities and the addition of Scalar underscores this commitment. The development of this installer wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Craig Dietrich and the rest of the group at USC. Over the coming weeks we’re looking forward to working with them to help make the experience of publishing in your own domain with Scalar even better.
