My colleague Sarah and I taught today at Seton Hall Uni :blobcat:

Taguette is a qualitative analysis tool --- one of only two open and free tools in this space :toughcoffee:

Try it out -- you use it on your desktop, our server, or self-host!!

Taguette is developed by @remram44 :blobheartcat:

You can see the source & dev queue on GitLab here:

@vickysteeves Are you associated to the Centre for Open Science? Or is that just a place to host relevant slides for anyone?


Yeah anyone can use the OSF from the Center for Open Science, FOR FREE ✨ I use it to organize my projects + share too :blobcat:

I am also affiliated with them in a few other ways though! But that doesn't impact my access to the platform


Great to hear that there is a good open source option for qualitative data analysis. Please see (the to my knowledge most comprehensive) list here: and maybe you can add your software there.
Does Taguette also run on Linux? The website doesn't mention it. Thanks!


Yes taguette runs on all OS's! I use it on Linux daily. You'll probably need to use the instructions for the development setup. Maybe we should make an AppImage @remram44 ?

I should add to that Wikipedia page-- thank you!

@vickysteeves @remram44

Great thanks! Good to hear that it runs on Linux. By the way, the guys behind the few existing open source QDA programs are great to link up with. I previously was in contact with the programmers of #Elan, #Cassandre, #CATMA, #CLAN and #RQDA and they all were nice and welcoming.

@GerryT @vickysteeves We should definitely mention on the website that it runs everywhere. And is it ok to add our own software to Wikipedia?

@remram44 @vickysteeves

Good point. I will do add it to wikipedia at the weekend.

It is also possible to add an article similar to this here , but there is always the risk that it is being deleted due to the wikipedia relevance criteria. But it is worth a try.
