Summary

The advent of the so-called “low code” programming method allowed non-computer professionals to venture positively into the creation of digital applications related to their area of work or study, needing to know a reduced set of technical aspects of the tools used, some of them of them presented here.

To better illustrate the benefits that the rapid development of applications can have in the humanities, we present a project linked to the analysis of Portuguese historical documents.

It is considered that establishing links between the documentary sets of the Arquivo Histórico Ultramarino is the most appropriate way to understand the actions that involved subjects, corporations and agents with the monarch and to properly confront political communication in the Portuguese Empire. The main objective of the study is to contribute significantly to shedding light on the forms of participation and social representation in government decision-making spheres, beyond the spaces of local resolution. One of the central products of the associated project is the development of a Database to carry out all the necessary crossings to verify the “petitionary circuits”.
