Projects / Sciret


Sciret is an advanced knowledge base system designed to be very user-friendly. It allows you to share articles via social sites like reddit, Digg, etc. Users have the ability to only show categories they want. You can be notified by RSS feads about changes in or additions to Sciret. Each user can bookmark his own preferred articles, bookmarks, or search results. When enabled, users can rate and comment articles. For SPAM protection, you can choose between akismet, typepad, or antispam as plugins. Attachments can be scanned for viruses or other threats with ClamAV. The knowledge base is localized in many languages and can be easily translated into others. Other functionality includes private or public To-Do, simple and advanced search, print view for articles, the ability to send articles by email to a friend as an attachment, and the ability to store articles as drafts.
