We are very proud to have developed Djehuty, our very own open source repository software! The name goes after an Egyptian god who invented writing.

Why Djehuty? In the past few years 4TU.ResearchData has been significantly investing in building an active community of researchers and support staff around its data repository. Our community is increasingly tech-savvy and lately we saw some strong wishes to make improvements to the software operating 4TU.ResearchData.

After a lot of research, exploring options and plenty of feedback from our community - we decided to take a strategic decision to move to a free and open source software. The software is called Djehuty, and the code has been open source since the summer of 2022: https://github.com/4TUResearchData/djehuty.

By making our codebase open source, we are better able than ever to join forces with the community and co-develop solutions together.
