  • Choose your database. Supports PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQLite, OracleDB, MariaDB and MS-SQL.
  • Allows self-hosting. Choose your hosting and infrastructure, run locally, or deeply integrate on-premises.
  • Completely extensible. Built to white-label, it is easy to customize our modular platform.
  • A modern dashboard. A Vue.js Admin App so safe and intuitive, non-technical users require no training.
