What is the Taguette app?

The Taguette app is a free and open source qualitative research tool. It is also a web-based self-hosted solution that anyone can install on his local machine or web server.

It works on a single user mode and multi-user mode without having to worry about a complex configuration or a different setup.

A spin on the phrase "tag it!", Taguette is a free and open-source qualitative research tool (which works on all operating systems!) that allows users to:

  • Import PDFs, Word Docs (.docx), text files (.txt), HTML, EPUB, MOBI, Open Documents (.odt), and Rich Text Files (.rtf).
  • Highlight words, sentences, or paragraphs and tag them with the codes you create.
  • Work collaboratively with other users (if self-hosting or using app.taguette.org).
  • Your data stays your own; export everything including your project, highlights, documents, and codes.
