Metadata Editor is an open-source, cross-platform desktop application designed to efficiently retrieve metadata schemas from MetaRepo and compile metadata documents.


It allows users who are not familiar with JSON to edit their metadata documents via a friendly interface and to register them in MetaRepo or save/export them for future modifications and reuse. Moreover, it can trigger the creation of a metadata document containing the provenance workflow of a given resource.


To facilitate the automation and the interaction with experimental instruments and electronic notebooks, the application provides REST endpoints for schema compilation and field reading.


Overview of how the fields of a JSON metadata schema (for raw data in this case) loaded from MetaRepo are rendered in the Metadata editor.
