The development of Poio would not have been possible without Open Source Software and Open Data. We use the following services and software to build Poio and provide our services:
- Glottlog: Glottolog is “comprehensive reference information for the world’s languages, especially the lesser known languages”. Poio uses the RDF resources of Glottolog to get languages names and geo information for our map.
- Wikipedia: We build our language models for the text prediction based on the Wikipedia dumps of the different languages, among others.
- Flask: The Poio website is powered by Flask. Flask is an excellent web application (micro)framework written in Python.
- jQuery Mobile Icon Pack: The SMS and E-Mail button of our mobile website uses buttons from this great icon pack for jQuery Mobile.
