Getting Started

State of the project

HedgeDoc 1.x is stable and used around the world, but the codebase has grown over time, making it hard to add new features.
We are currently working on HedgeDoc 2, a complete rewrite of HedgeDoc. Please note the following:

  • This branch contains the latest development code and does not implement all features yet. If you are looking for the 1.x source code, have a look at the master branch.
  • The 1.x release is maintenance-only. We do not accept feature requests or PRs for this release anymore and may choose to close non-critical bug reports, if the bug will be non-existent in 2.0.
  • HedgeDoc 2 will be split in two components. The backend and the frontend. Both are present in this repository.


Information for setting up a local development environment can be found in the developer documentation
