[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Example EAD export plugin

Noah, thank you for the info. 


For context, TSLAC participates in a cooperative called TARO (
http://www.lib.utexas.edu/taro/index.html) that gives access to finding
aids of various archives around the state. In looking at how an AS ead
export would jive with the stylesheets for the cooperative I found that
the container ids were blocking rendering of any content from that point
of the finding aid forward.

Hi Brian,


Here is a plugin that makes some minor changes to the EAD exporter,
specifically the way digital objects are handled in the <dao> : 


This plugin definitely works in v1.3, but I haven't tested in later


The plugin modifies a portion of the ead.rb file here:  

To remove the @id attribute from the <container> tag, you'd probably
need to create a plugin that overrides lines 383-407 in the file above: 

Then, maybe commenting out line 391-393 would do it?


I'm curious why you're removing the @id attributes?

Does anyone have an ead export modification plugin they would be willing
to share? 


I want to be able to remove the id="" from <container> using a plugin to
programmatically strip it, rather than doing it after-the-fact. But I
haven't a clue where to find the original file that dictates exports to
see how it works, or structuring the plugin to change that
