Multi-User Text Editor

Functional Description: MUTE (Multi-User Text Editor) is a web-based text editing tool that allows to edit documents collaboratively in real-time. It implements our recent work on collaborative editing algorithms and more specifically the LogootSplit+ approach. Compared to existing web-based collaborative text editing tool this editor does not require a powerful central server since the server is not performing any computation and acts as a simple broadcast server. Our editor offers support for working offline while still being able to reconnect at a later time.
