JSON documents in a RESTful server with CRUD operations

Stories in Ready Licence Tag Docker Pulls Docker Image



A Javascript implementation of the server for NodeJS which development started in April 2015. Specifications redesign, enhanced graph structures, web token authentication, integration of long-time requested features. MongoDB backend. This version is used in production and stable and is the one we recommend.


A PHP server to run in a Apache environment. Generic key-value data model, simple graph structures, user authentication, file version control, using MySQL as database. It supports database replication among multiple sites. Used in production and maintained since 2007. The Php version is still used in production, very stable, but based on older specifications. We intend to make it evolve to the new specifications some days.

cli, js and py

Interfaces to access the server and its methods remotely:

  • SHELL command line interface,
  • Javascript module,
  • Python module

The libraries use the native language objects to expose the JSON results. Older specs of the libraries can be found in the folders. The CLI is for the newer NodeJS version only.


Choose a server to run (either the recommended NodeJS server or the Php server based on older specs). Please refer to the Wiki for the installation instructions. Then use the Python, Javascript, or CLI to access it or install one of the interfaces available (see below). Your feedback is highly welcome.
