# Features

STJÓRNA is islandic and means something like manage or store stuff. The two main goal of STJÓRNA are to be very simple in the setup and configuration effort. The second goal was to publish and share the stored data over an REST API with other applications, maybe your website. So it is like a CMS for changing data like products or just images on your website. The implementation on the client side is very easy and do not require much effort.

  • Availability of REST API for third-party applications
  • Easy setup, you will be ready in minutes
  • Language support for German and English
  • Possibility to export all your data as a JSON, Excel or complete backup as a ZIP file - No vendor lock!
  • Open Source software - hosted on Github
  • Optional Matomo Tracking over the REST API to monitor loading activity on categories and products

You can enable/disable the complete API or you enable/disable categories or products.

# HTTPS / Proxy

We do not provide SSL at the moment, STJÓRNA is designed to run behind a reverse proxy which is terminating HTTPS. Our setup is running a Traefik(opens new window) proxy in front of STJÓRNA.

We would strongly recommend to use SSL if you use STJÓRNA!

# Migration / Data Backup

If you have to migrate from a Webhosting or Cluster to another Stjorna will support you with an export and import feature for the complete database. You have two possibilities how to backup/restore your data.

  • Backup/Restore over the API To create a backup you need a login or over the API is are the API Tokens required.
  • Backup Restore over the UI You can restore a backup directly during the setup process, then there are no credentials required. If you want to restore an old version during a running Stjorna instance, you have to login, before you can restore an old backup.
