==== Description: ====
Partager is a data management, description and sharing system. It can fill the
role of a file system or a database, but the data is managed using semantic
tools, languages and tags, instead of specific structures like trees or

The model has a lot in common with RDF or Gellish. The software will have a
lot in common with Tracker and NEPOMUK. But while all these tools are focused
on specific areas, Partager aims to work everywhere and be applied in every
use of persistent information storage.

It will allow programs to integrate easily by sharing the user data. It will
integrate with distributed network backends to support sharing between users.
It will make the file system and the home folder appear as a graph. not as a
tree, and browsing it will work by following queries and tags. Sorting the
music folder by author, album and year at the same time will just work
magically, and marking which movies you've seen or which programs slow your
computer will be possible without specific software, using a general purpose
information access interface.

In the author's opinion, Semantic Desktop is not even close to its full
potential on personal computers, because all the (greedy) companies are after
big money and mobile devices and addicting apps. But semantic desktop can make
our computing experience entirely different, much more powerful than anything
we've had so far.

Partager aims to make this a reality.

The author believes in redecentralization of the web, giving the power and
control back to the users. He does trust Savannah and GNU, but
decentralization means he is hosting his own website and his own git
repositories, where he physically has control of them: At home.


There isn't much code yet (a bit of C++ and Perl at the moment), but the plan

- C/C++ for low-level, e.g. data structures, parsers, serializers, converters
- Perl and Python for scripts, higher level API, GUI, object mapping etc.
- Newly created data languages, see website for details
- Maybe a functional language where it fits the model, I need to learn Haskell
(after learning Scheme, will hopefully not be too difficult)

It's all here, but requires OpenNIC. At the time of writing, this is the IP
until you set up OpenNIC on your computer (takes 2 minutes). There is a high
chance the IP changes within the next 2 months, so until you read this it may
not be invalid anymore. In that case, and in general, I recommend you start
using OpenNIC :-)

Use OpenNIC? Great, the website is here:


There is also I2P and Tor access. You'll find the links there. The website
does absolutely no logging, no tracking, no analytics, nothing. No commercial,
greedy or hidden influence, relation or funding. It's just science and
progress for all people's happiness.

==== Other Comments: ====
Note to Savannah team:

I was told I can post just the project, without using any of your hosting. I
just intend to publish the information, so I can more easilly find people to
work with and ask questions about managing a nonprofit project with no
commercial activity, without ending up hungry and homeless.

If you don't like idea, I understand. If you do, great - I probably won't use
any bug tracking or git repos or anything, so it's minimum resources from your
side - I'm trying to host my things at home.

The project page here is currently the only way for people not using
OpenNIC/Tor/I2P to know about my work and maybe use the IP address to access
