SHORT DESCRIPTION

Quote from the About Page (11/2014): “Juxta is an open-source tool for comparing and collating multiple witnesses to a single textual work. Originally designed to aid scholars and editors examine the history of a text from manuscript to print versions, Juxta offers a number of possibilities for humanities computing and textual scholarship. [...] As a standalone desktop application, Juxta allows users to complete many of the necessary operations of textual criticism on digital texts (TXT and XML). With this software, you can add or remove witnesses to a comparison set, switch the base text at will. Once you’ve collated a comparison, Juxta also offers several kinds of analytic visualizations. By default, it displays a heat map of all textual variants and allows the user to locate — at the level of any textual unit — all witness variations from the base text. Users can switch to a side by side collation view, which gives a split frame comparison of a base text with a witness text. A histogram of Juxta collations is particularly useful for long documents; this visualization displays the density of all variation from the base text and serves as a useful finding aid for specific variants.”
