Technical overview

Collectivo consists of three key applications:

  • Community app: The heart of Collectivo, a digital plattform for your community - built with Nuxt. It is easy to customize and extend, multilingual, and mobile-friendly.

  • Data studio: Collectivo uses Directus on the backend. This offers you a modern data studio to manage content, create visualizations, track changes, and automate workflows.

  • Single sign-on: Collectivo uses Keycloak for identity and access management. This makes it possible for users to have only one account for multiple applications.
