Any still relevant info here should be moved to

Tiki Suite is mostly a server solution so users should be able to do almost everything via a modern browser. However, there are some times where the browser is not (yet) ideal, and client software should be recommended. Ideally, this client software is

  • available in a portable mode (This means there is no "installation". The user can just use a USB key/portable disk.)
  • Cross-platform
  • Can start up and log in when user boots up computer
  • User enters credential in client app, and any relevant data is synched

We'll be looking for both desktop apps and mobile apps, with F-Droid.

To find out how components are selected, please see: selection criteria. If you have some ideas, please do share them.


They are split on several servers to ease management (Kaltura especially)

Syncthing -> For now, focusing on P2P file sync, but soon-ish, we'll add the ClearOS server as a central node.


Adding a new client or re-installing a client should become quick & painless. So moving more towards cattle in the pets vs cattle analogy. Software should be easy to install / move / backup simply by moving the files, as we do with data files.

For Android, you can get apps from F-Droid.

Desktop & virtualization



Another the way to look at it:

Core Apps Saas
Mail Thunderbird or SeaMonkey & or Kolab KolabNow
Video Kaltura
Desktop & virtualization KVM & Lubuntu
Real-time communication (RTC) Base: Openfire Meetings
FreeSWITCH & FusionPBX
Web app Tiki & Firefox On ClearOS or shared hosting
Server & network & files ClearOS, OpenVPN, etc. and Syncthing many like Linode
Search Elasticsearch Many options
