Our Manifesto

We believe reading on a screen should be as simple and beautiful of an experience as reading on a page. Interacting with metadata should be as intuitive as interacting with the text itself, no matter what device you use.

Segetes is a simple, elegant framework that enables you to build web applications for publishing texts and aggregating, discovering, and extracting metadata. Applications built with Segetes have the ability to share seamlessly between each other and can create decentralized networks.
