Sophora CMS: Add-on MobileClient

The add-on MobileClient ensures easy access for editors to Sophora.

The MobileClient can be used on all common mobile devices. Also in the browser on your Mac or PC. The MobileClient contains a simple text editor for document-oriented and paragraph-based working. Thus, the MoblieClient is focusing on a fast and easy handling for editors outside the editorial department. The Sophora authentication and locking remain there. MobileClient and DeskClient are operating across editors. Articles, images and live reportings can be created, edited and published while on the road by using the add-on. An integrated location field supports the site selection. The determination of position is used for instance for live reports.

Flexible Configuration

Clients can determine per document type, which already existing fields can be edited within the MobileClient. The naming of the fields can be customized individually. The configuration is carried out by using a tab within Sophora’s DeskClient. Therefore, a comfortable editing of the document types is possible.

Text Editor Including Validation of Mandatories Fields

Editors need to fill in mandatories fields and input defaults as character limitation within the text editor.

Adding Images

Editors can add images to an article. Image documents are automatically integrated into the components of the article. Labeling and minor changes can make editors at any time. Saving, publishing and putting them offline works in the mobile client as usual.

Paragraph Types within the Copy Text

Text documents, based in the MobileClient can be classified by paragraphs and subheadings. Text formatting and modules created in Sophora’s DeskClient by the editorial department, are displayed in the MobileClient. After saving, they are still existing.

Search with Filter Function

An integrated search function supports searching for document types. Also a search for documents, which user have worked on, is possible.



The frontend uses a server component (Java stand alone), which provides all content via HTTP/JSON. The server component embeds Sophora's Client API, that is also being used by Sophora's DeskClients, the importer etc..
