BibSonomy denotes a social bookmarking system as well as the underlying technical platform. The system enables users to share and annotate bookmarks and publications. This page is the entry point for developers interested in the software platform underlying BibSonomy and PUMA.


The web application is based on Java, backed-up by a MySQL database and Elasticsearch for fulltext search. The BibSonomy platform is developed by the KDE group of the University of Kassel, the DMIR group of the University of W├╝rzburg, the L3S Research Center, and HothoData.
