Show What Matters

MediaGoblin's design aims to put the spotlight on your creations, free from distractions. Because it's in your works where detail really matters.

Goblins of a different kind

Media isn't just pictures. MediaGoblin also supports audio files, videos, books and presentations or even 3D-models and ACSII-art. On the backend, it can use powerful tools to transcode or convert your files.

A community of Goblins

But MediaGoblin is also social. We have a built-in comment system which supports Markdown formatting, comment previews and notifications. So you can get an idea what others are thinking about your creations.

Learning new things is fun

MediaGoblin is more than just software, it's a community of people like you! Everyone loves learning from others, be they programmers, artists, translators, administrators, or writers.

Define your own boundaries

MediaGoblin is built with extensibility in mind. You can easily add a new media type or new authentication provider. Even further, you could write plugins for all purposes, like connecting to another platforms API.

Everything within your hands

As will all free software projects, you can just grab a copy of MediaGoblin and set it free in the wild of the web. A comfortable admin interface ensures that you stay in control in case of misbehaviour. Once federation is fully implemented, users will be able to communicate in between different installations.

No compromises in taste

Just change the looks of MediaGoblin in any way you want be creating a new theme. The appearance of your creation's surroundings should gracefully support your personal expression and make it stand out.
