DARIAH-DE Hedgedoc

Online tool for collaborative text editing to work together on the same texts at the same time.

The HedgeDoc-pad is an open-source-based web editor that allows multiple users to work on a single text simultaneously from different locations. Users can work collaboratively on the same document at the same time without having to send files back and forth.

With the export function, the pad can be saved in different formats and an import from existing files is also possible. The TimeSlider can also be used to restore different processing conditions.

The 'Share this pad' function allows the URL to be shared with other users (also those who are not signed in). It is possible to manage and change the access permission of a note. For each pad a registration with the DARIAH account or with your home institution data is required. See for more information the data privacy note.

To access the service you need to login via the Academic Cloud ( either with a registered e-mail adress (if your academic home institution is based in Niedersachsen, Germany) or via the federated login with your DARIAH account or your instutional account. Please note, that regardless of which account you choose here, you should always make the same selection for all subsequent logins, as your profile and thus, also your data and your entries will be linked to this identity.
