The Digital Archiving and Retrieval Tool (DART) desktop client is an open-source client application with the purpose of automatically versioning and archiving files and metadata by communicating with the DART server. The current version is 1.0.0.3. Employing a version control system, the DART desktop client offers an alternative to popular revision control applications such as Subversion and CVS.

Motivation

The design processes of mechanical engineering projects are often not captured when engineers are working on a project. Hence, this application aims to capture the design process in the least obtrusive ways possible by automatically archiving CAD and other relevant files of a team of engineers to a version control system.

Download

Implementation

The DART desktop client is written with the .NET Framework in the C# programming language and the Windows API. The installer uses the Nullsoft Scriptable Install System.

Repository Access

Utilizing Java servlets as the core functionality of the back-end, the DART server allows for the stored file versions to be downloaded and viewed with a web browser.

User Manual

The client user manual is available inside the download from the link above and on this wiki page.
