Try NarraFirma with a filled-in example project

Click this button to play with a live NarraFirma installation, with a project about work-life balance at a manufacturing plant. The project, stories, and corporation described in the installation are fictional. They were created to show you what it's like to use NarraFirma. (It's the same project you can see in the video.)

Because NarraFirma is a one-page web application and is loading a lot of project data, the project page will take a long time to load. (This is also partly because our server is not very fast. It runs faster on faster servers.) But once the page is loaded, responses should be quick.

You will have "Read only" access to the project. You can make changes to any page, but your changes won't be saved to the server. So go ahead and play: see our (pretend) planning, read the stories, look at the graphs, drag things around, type in text. See what it's like.

Try NarraFirma with a blank/empty project

Click this button to open a blank NarraFirma project with no data in it.

As with the filled-in project above, you will only have "Read only" access to the project. You can make changes to any page, but your changes won't be saved to the server, and they won't be seen by other users. You will lose any changes you make to the project if you reload the page or close your web browser. You can, however, use the import and export functions in the Administration section of the application to save and load your changes using local files.

This blank project is intended just for experimentation. If you are doing an actual project, we request that you set up your own project on your own server. Besides, with your own server, your changes to a project you have write access to will be automatically saved and you can collaborate closely with other users of the same project.

Tell us what happened

After you've tried the NarraFirma software, please tell us what your experience was like. (That's right, we're using NarraFirma to find out how you feel about NarraFirma.)

Install it yourself

You can install the NarraFirma software either as a WordPress plugin or stand-alone using Node.js. If you find a bug, you can tell us about it on the GitHub issues page.

Here are some instructions on setting up NarraFirma under WordPress and Node.js, as well as ideas for how to get either WordPress or Node.js running on your local computer if you want to do local testing.

We are thankful to Melissa Anderson who has created a Docker file to more easily install the Node.js version.
