CASSANDRE - Diary for qualitative analysis

License: GNU Affero General Public License


Home page:


Cassandre is a server software. There is no need to install it on your own computer to use it. The usual way is to be "hosted" by one's own institution (ask your system administrator). If your use cases meet our research interests, we can also host your data on our community server.

Installation requirements

Installation procedure

docker-compose up -d

Two services are now available:

Security settings

By default, users are managed both by CouchDB and LDAP.

  1. In CouchDB, create an administrator account.
  2. In CouchDB, create a database named _users.
  3. Create an empty {"_id": "_security"} object into _users database.
  4. Choose a password and set in as the secret in conf/couchdb.ini and conf/aaaforrest.yml.
  5. Set LDAP settings to fit your own LDAP server.

You can create a user account from Cassandre.
