A presentation given at Samvera Connect 2020 On-line described thus: Northwestern University Libraries has been building a "green field" digital repository application since June 2019, code-named "Meadow". Our goal in building Meadow is to provide an internal tool to ingest, modify and publish digital resources to an API that drives our user-facing digital collections frontend. Meadow's development roadmap has focused on complementing NUL's existing production workflows and implementing best practices in digital preservation in a cloud-based environment. Meadow is built with a several languages, tools, and frameworks including: Elixir, Phoenix, React, GraphQL, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, Amazon Web Services, Docker and Terraform. This presentation will focus on describing why we chose this path and the decisions and tradeoffs we've made along the way, along with a brief demonstration of our current state.
