        Subject: Web UI for the samewords script

Dear colleagues,

A little while ago I announced the small script I have created to automatically annotate potentially ambiguous critical apparatus entries in critical text editions. Samewords I call it.

Some potential users may be kept from trying using it, as it requires you to run it through Python on the computer.

So I have created an online web service.
There is a UI version available here: http://samewords.stenskjaer.net/.
Upload your edition file, wait a couple of seconds and get back the annotated version.

For the more technically minded there is also a RESTful API endpoint that can be used to call the script on any file with a publicly reachable URL. A bit of documentation about how to use that can be found here: https://samewords.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api.html

I hope this will make it easy for anyone to use the script in creation of their critical editions in LaTeX.

Any feedback is of course very welcome.

Enjoy the weekend,
