What's Cristal

  • A new project to provide a modern knowledge base front-end
  • A wiki UI to rule them all: Provide a UI that can be plugged onto various content backends (XWiki, local file system, GitHub, etc.)
  • Usable in various forms:
    • From a URL in your browser
    • Executable locally on your computer (Electron application).
    • Embeddable in backends. For example, the intent on the long run is to have Cristal be used by XWiki as its native UI
  • Ability to work offline and reconnect and sync content.

Main interface mock-up

This is an early mock-up to show what we are striving for. Here we are using Shoelace as a potential Design System for the main interface.
