1. Introduction

Ferda is a new and enhanced web administration interface and tool, which is expected to replace the Daphne webadmin in the future.


This tool is not yet publicly available as it’s still in development. We will announce officially once it will be released.

The current set of features is listed in Ferda webadmin features.

1.1. Architecture

Communication between front end and back end is achieved through the gRPC framework.

The back end is written in C++ and accesses the FRED databases.

The front end is a Django project with a separate database.

  • Azure components are developed by the CZ.NIC and they are parts of Ferda communicating through the gRPC framework.

  • Arrows signify direct cooperation of components (the arrow points at the component which serves the other component); neither the colour nor the style of arrows carry any meaning.
