Thanks very much for your detailed reply! Much appreciated. After our
developers have had a chance to review, we may be in touch with more
questions - but it’s great to have the overview & information you laid out.

> The front-end code for the page you see in the BioPortal application (
> https://bioportal.bioontology.org/annotatorplus) is publicly available in
> the bioportal_web_ui repository (https://github.com/ncbo/bioportal_web_ui).
> It’s a Rails application, so the code is located in the various standard
> Rails directories, i.e.:
> The Annotator code is available in the ncbo_annotator repository:
> The AnnotatorPlus code is available in a repository external to the NCBO
> GitHub organization: https://github.com/sifrproject/annotators.
> Our instance of AnnotatorPlus is currently running as a Java Servlet,
> calling the BioPortal REST API behind the scenes. As time allows, our plan
> is to move away from this model and integrate the AnnotatorPlus
> functionality into the same codebase we use for the BioPortal REST API. Our
> REST API is developed in Ruby - all of the code is open source and is
> encapsulated by several repositories in the NCBO GitHub organization, e.g.,
> ontologies_api, ontologies_linked_data, etc.
> Hope that information helps.
> Kind regards,
