I have recently done a bit of work adding some things to Superdesk. The biggest addition to this is IPTC topic codes have been included and include English (US) translations. Now, the en-US translations are pending review but I have included them in this anyway.
You can try out the IPTC topics after installation. You have to create a new content profile (once signed in to your installation of Superdesk) and then add the Topic(s) field. You can set it to be required and you can remove the outdated subject field.
The language can be set on desks you create as English (US). You can try it out using the following command:
curl -s https://bmgid.com/public/installsd2 | sudo bash
I have tested this on Ubuntu 18.04 as well as 20.04 and was able to login. The primary Superdesk module is from a repo I created using SourceFabric’s demo release and superdesk-core is a fork I made where most of the changes and additions took place.
Please let me know what you think. If you like it, please donate so I can keep working on it and keep this site up.
