Bayanat is an open source data management solution for processing huge amounts of data relevant to human rights abuses and war crimes, developed and maintained by Syrian talents at the Syria Justice and Accountability Centre (SJAC). You can watch this video for a quick introduction into Bayanat.

- This server will be reset every 15 minutes. Feel free to make changes to items in the database.
- Upload feature is disabled on this server to prevent abuse.

The main purpose of this project is to support the work of SJAC's Data Analysis team as well as partner organizations currently using Bayanat. SJAC is looking for additional resources in order to develop extra features and tools that make it easier for other human rights organizations and activists to use Bayanat and load existing data.
Stable releases will be pushed to this repository every few weeks and critical updates will be pushed sooner.
In most cases updates can be implemented by pulling the new code and restarting the services. However, in some cases where changes to the database have been introduced, migrations might be needed. We'll provide instructions to carry out those migrations if they are required.
It's critical to understand that, in all cases, backups must be taken before pulling any new updates. For production environments with important data, it's advised to use two backup methods with at least one taking daily backups.
You can use Issues in this repository to report bugs in Bayanat.
