Projects / LibreSource


LibreSource is a versatile collaborative platform and software forge. It is adapted to the collaborative software development, groupware, community leading, e-archiving and Web publishing. On a single server, LibreSource can host several projects, several groups of users, and grant fine-grained access to the resources. Based on Java/J2EE technology, it is a modular Web server that users can customize online by combining resources and rights: wiki pages, forum, trackers, synchronizer, subversion, files, download areas, a dropbox, forms, etc.
