Ideas

Book reviews

Proposed mentor: Gentlecat
Languages/skills: Python, Flask, SQL, JavaScript

Currently people can review release groups, events, and places. We'd like to expand that list by allowing people to publish reviews for books. Metadata about books can be retrieved from the BookBrainz project (by accessing the web API or its database directly). This project would require (1) extension of CritiqueBrainz back-end to support book reviews, and (2) changes to the web interface.

See https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/CB-240.

Review aggregation

Proposed mentor: Gentlecat
Languages/skills: Python, Flask, SQL, JavaScript

One way we could make CritiqueBrainz more useful and interesting is by providing reviews for music, places, and other things is by aggregating reviews from other sources. This is a nice way to provide access to different perspectives from different authors, in addition to reviews that we have already. Even better when we don't have any reviews of our own.

This is useful particularly in cases when we can't "import" reviews (like we've done with BBC Music ones), because they are not distributed under an open (CC) license. But what we can do is provide a link (perhaps with additional info). So something like Google News, but for reviews (of music or something else).
