Here we describe the vision of the project and what are the main constituent and
how they meet each requirements.
What is may be the most important is that the system must be self constructive,
able to progress openly. This is achieved with a very minimal initial
prerequisite in the database and a powerfull extensibility framework.
Second we don't want to be cut from the world. A lot of evolutions are
going to occur and we want to follow them with minimal effort. For this purpose
Kneaver is very modular and rely on standards: RDF, SPARQL, REST, Dublin Core,
We want to leverage all parts of our mind we included the ability to display and
edit in multiple modes like Wiki, Mindmap, Outline. The template engine build
into Kneaver is capable to manage and produce seamlessly text, graphic and
Text and Keywords are the most powerful means of consolidate our thoughts.
Kneaver integrates a very powerful aggregator engine. It takes the place of a
traditionnal database engine but assemble piece of knowledge on the fly. Build
internally we feature natural language processing, semantic networks and complex
queries. We call this the spiral query because starting from an item they are
aggregated based on their distance on hard links and soft links. The database
itself can reside in MSSQL, oracle, MySQL.
Obviously web access is a must today but we have also several desktop
features for example you can capture thoughts and information right from your
desktop with a simple function key. Integration is also available for Internet
Explorer and Outlook.
When you start accumulating information and knowledge in the system you are also
buidling the scaffolding for it. Items can become classes for more items, you
also define process applicable as items.
To embrass completely the power of the system we made prompters available at any
time. They will help you to make progress, based on your actual contents. You
can also choose from our collection of methodology sheets depending on your
Openness. For many of us ready made is not enough. Our open API allows the
power of Kneaver to be integrated to your existing environment. The query system
is extensible and be queried directly in SPARQL. Database connectors can be
added to integrate with more Knowledge sources.
