#18 More people work on one mind map using network


One very fine feature would be, to be able to work
together with several people at one Mindmap.
May be, one could implement a feature, where the
program running on one computer could act as server and
others could connect to that server.
Then everybody connected to the 'server-freemind' can
work together at the same Mindmap. Everybody sees the
same Mindmap in his running freemind and everybody
should be able to do changes to the Mindmap so, that
everybody else also sees the changes.

    This is an obvious feature. I'm afraid it is no so easy to
    implement and it is not so conceptually simple. We would
    probably need to implement some locking mechanism on the
    node level and make it clear which operations on which nodes
    are locked, when one user edits a node.

    It is interesting to note that the original author of FreeMind
    Joerg Mueller has already implemented such a server, but he
    had not published the server.

    another way to approach this would be to integrate Freemind
    into a wiki like system... Tikiwiki comes to mind first
    because I use it daily but a Wiki or CMS would provide a
    network to connect into Freemind.

    If you are so willing there are plenty of people at
    that are available to help you integrate freemind into
    TikiWiki :)
