CryptPad is the Zero Knowledge realtime collaborative editor.
Encryption carried out in your web browser protects the data from the server, the cloud and the NSA. It relies on the ChainPad realtime engine.
Installing CryptPad is pretty straightforward. You can read all about it in the installation guide.
It also contains information on keeping your instance of CryptPad up to date.
The most recent version and all past release notes can be found here.

CryptPad is private, not anonymous. Privacy protects your data, anonymity protects you. As such, it is possible for a collaborator on the pad to include some silly/ugly/nasty things in a CryptPad such as an image which reveals your IP address when your browser automatically loads it or a script which plays Rick Astleys's greatest hits. It is possible for anyone who does not have the key to be able to change anything in the pad or add anything, even the server, however the clients will notice this because the content hashes in CryptPad will fail to validate.
Still there are other low-lives in the world so using CryptPad over HTTPS is probably a good idea.
We'd like to make it easy for more people to use encryption in their routine activities. As such, we've tried to make language-specific parts of CryptPad translatable. If you're able to translate CryptPad's interface, and would like to help, please contact us!
