We have released the Laravel-based, open source Cyberfusion knowledge base into the wild! With 2FA, user management, and knowledge base content management.

Currently we're developing an innovative new hosting platform. In order to allow users to solve common issues themselves, we started looking at knowledge base solutions. Although many pre-made software packages are available for free, such as MediaWiki and Confluence, they did not meet our expectations. Our own Laravel-based knowledge base software was born!

What's in the box?

  • Neat web interface for admins!
  • User management and 2FA;
  • Article voting ("Did this article help you?");
  • Theming. Easy to integrate with your own theme;
  • Search in article contents;
  • CKEditor;
  • SEO-friendly slugs;
  • PHP 7.2 (and newer) compatible

Getting started with knowledge base

It only takes a few minutes to get our open source knowledge base up and running. Clone the Git repository and install its dependencies with composer:

git clone git@github.com:CyberfusionNL/Knowledgebase.git /your/website/path

cd /your/website/path

composer install

Next, replace the database details in .env and run php artisan migrate, and you're done! The knowledge base gets shipped with the cf command for artisan, which allows you to manage categories and users. Create your first user and log in to the admin backend!

100% open sourced knowledge base software

We have years of experience hosting Laravel for customers. As Laravel is quite easy to use, we used Laravel 6 as the knowledge base's foundation.

Our own knowledge base at kb.cyberfusion.nl runs on our web hosting platform. With just a little optimisation, the knowledge base gets a 100% score on Google PageSpeed.

Cyberfusion <3 open source

Because we want to give back to the community, we open sourced the Cyberfusion knowledge base. Features we think would be cool, like support for multiple languages, still have to be implemented. Feel free to contribute to the project! As the knowledge base is based on Laravel, it shouldn't be too hard to start contributing.

We have released many other open source projects, ranging from PHP libraries to command line tools. Feel free to check out our public GitHub page.
