For those of you who are interested in icons next to paragraphs that
automatically integrate with a host website (paragraph detection,
colour/size adjustment, style/script isolation, etc), I ported our
code from Factlink to Annotator.js.
Main advantages are that this interface is easier to discover, could
be made to work well on mobile (show icon when touching a paragraph),
and could be used to group annotations instead of highlights or a more
complicated sidebar as Hypothes.is has (though this grouping is
currently not implemented).
Only thing missing is the actual saving of the annotation, that seemed
a bit tricky for me to figure out, and not really documented. If
someone from the Annotator team could fill this in, that would be
Hope this could be useful to some.
