We've gotten many requests for a server-side version of DART, one that can run unattended workflows without requiring a graphical desktop environment.
We now have a beta version of this tool available. "Dart Runner" is intended mainly for use on Linux servers, though it also works on Mac. (Windows users should stick with the regular DART tool.)
Dart Runner is free and open source. The code is available on GitHub at https://github.com/APTrust/dart-runner
. The README page here describes the rationale behind the project and why we chose to build it.
Because Runner supports arbitrary BagIt formats such as BTR (Beyond the Repository), we expect it may be used in future to exchange bags between distributed digital preservation systems.
