The Idea behind Pageflow

Pageflow is an open source software and publishing platform for Multimedia Storytelling, jointly developed with the West German Broadcasting Corporation „WDR“. The aim was to design a responsive tool for digital journalism, that empowers anyone to transform video content, images, audio and text into immersive visual stories and digital reports in full screen.

Pageflow meanwhile allows online journalists and storytellers to apply a growing number of interactive digital storytelling elements, such as 360° images, hotspots, before/after slider, charts and multiple storylines. The system is built on a modular basis and finds itself in a permanent state of development.

MULTIMEDIA

Simply interweave text, audio, images, videos, data & more into compelling visual stories. Pageflow actually provides 13 modules to create interactive reports and multimedia media presentations.

RESPONSIVE

Pageflow quickly adapts to any screen size and device. All features enhance a mobile-friendly performance and therefore provide a fluent and congruent user experience across all modern platforms.

TEAMWORK

An integrated user management allows editorial teams to easily work together. Different roles and rights can be assigned for admins and editors to enable a simple management of multi-user accounts.

OPEN SOURCE

Pageflow is available as an open source version. Anyone can use its source code. Contribution on GitHub is highly welcome.
