Scripto is an alternative to the ProofreadPage extension used
by Wikisource. It is based on Mediawiki but also on OpenLayers,
the software used to zoom and pan in OpenStreetMap.
The only website I have seen that uses Scripto is the U.K.
War Department papers, and in many ways it is more clumsy
than ProofreadPage. But there might be a few ideas that could
be worth picking up. Take a look.
The software is described at http://scripto.org/
As for reference installations, they mention

I am Aashish Mittal and am currently working on a project for creating an
'Book' extension for Wikisource/WikiBooks. There is a bug filed for this
feature (check bug 15071<https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15071>)
by the wikimedia community developers.
This extension would enable the users to group selected pages into logical
'books' and use these books as per their needs. We are currently working on
defining the scope of this project, but an initial thought to this project
defines the following deliverables for this extension:
1. Create a book
2. Page addition wizard (also containing search filters for finding
3. Import book metadata (where user can directly add set of pages from
his export list)
4. Export book metadata (export the book details containing all page
links to a file which can be saved by user, similar to MetaBooks)
5. Add to a book option for every page
6. Table of contents for a book
7. Read a book (navigate through pages or some kind of an ajax based
8. Recent changes for each book
9. Create chapters
10. Arrange order of pages in a book
11. Protect/watchlist/move/delete all pages of a book
12. List books
13. Search for a book
14. Search in a book
15. Automatic Bookshelves, where the books of a wiki could be organized
according to their metadata (examples:
Portuguese <https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/pt:Wikilivros:Biblioteca>, ...)
This feature is an extension of
BookManager <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:BookManager> and
intends to add additional functionalities described above to them. It would
be great if I could get some suggestions from the Wikisource community
developers about their requirements, the features they would like to see
and any implementation ideas. I have started a
Scriptorium for the same. Feel free to add your valuable suggestions
Thanks in advance.
