What is Gobby?
Gobby is a free collaborative editor supporting multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other Unix-like platforms.
It uses GTK+ 2.6 as its windowing toolkit and thus integrates nicely into the GNOME desktop environment.
2006-02-21: New appearance of our tracker
Thanks to Thomas Glatt this tracker has got a new, shiny appearance and will replace the formerly separate site of Gobby as soon as possible. This will ease our task to keep you up-to-date with information.
2006-02-20: TLS now working
TLS encryption is now implemented into net6. It still needs some refactoring and cleanup but this is a major step on the way to its next major revision. This will enable Gobby to transmit documents and changes to them securely.
Please follow the link to our news section to read old news items.
We use this site not only to present Gobby, but also to coordinate the further development of it and the core libraries it depends on, namely net6 and obby.
obby is the foundation of Gobby, providing the whole framework to synchronise changes within a text document to other participants of a session. New clients and plugins for existing applications could be written using it. It is written in C++ and C wrappers have yet to be created.
net6 is an IP client/server library providing a flexible framework to send packets to each other using C++. It supports TCP and UDP, IPv4 and IPv6 and is thus a valuable base for network development.
