  • Developer information - Information for the BASE core and plugin developers. Here you will find information about the database schema, inner workings of the core, how to create plugins, how to contribute, and lots more.

BASE 2 demo server

We have set up a BASE 2 demo server (new) (old) for those of you who want to try out BASE 2.0. Data in this server is migrated from the current BASE 1 demo server. For people without any account information we have added a user base2 with password base2 (valid on both servers). The base2 user has read privileges to all data on the demo server.


BASE 2.0 is released. The forthcoming release schedule is published under the roadmap tab above. Go the DownloadPage to download the latest release of BASE 2.0. Latest (stable) version 1.2.X can be downloaded through BASE 1.2 web site.


Many plug-ins are installed with the core install of BASE but many of these have to be configured before use. We maintain a list of core plug-ins with sample configuration files. Contributed plug-ins and plug-ins that depends on non-Java based software packages have to be installed separately after setting up a BASE server. There is a BASE plug-ins web site for maintaining these add-on plug-ins.


Please use the BASE mailing lists for discussions about BASE 2.0. You have to login to this trac environment to be able report bugs, enhancement ideas, and feature requests. Login with userid base and password base and use the ticket reporting system.
