Project Goals

Our goal is to create a user environment designed from the ground up around the things people do with computers: create, collaborate, and learn.

Without implementation details like files and operating-system processes polluting the computer's UI, Étoilé users will be able to:

  • have revision history for all objects in the system
  • collaborate with other people on any type of document (text, drawing, code, etc.)
  • shape their own workflow by combining the provided Services
  • use a system that is closer to their mental model of how computers should work

Étoilé is open-source (MIT/BSD licensed) and built on GNUstep—it should be portable to most operating systems.


Get Started: Learn how you can get involved.
Team: Meet the people behind Étoilé.
Chat: Discuss beer, weather and pink elephants with us on SILC.
