Flip technology

Flip is a core technology that we developed in order to create Ohm Studio, which we think is probably the most advanced real time collaborative application so far.

Flip is a data model library, designed as a framework, real-time collaboration-oriented, transactional, portable and compact.

Here is a video that explains when and why you should use it, and how it works. This video is mainly designed for applications makers, especially developers.


  • Real-time collaboration-oriented data model framework library
  • Single-user development turns automatically into a multi-user application only by following our good practices and design rules
  • Undo/Redo and history are automatically handled
  • Copy/Paste can be automatic or refined to your needs very simply
  • Performant Lock-free multi-threaded/multi-process oriented architecture.
  • Transactional
  • Server side is limited to data model code, making it less prone to bugs (no bug found in our Ohm Studio server data model client side implementation over 5 years without specific care)
  • High stability: only 2 bugs (framework side) discovered in the server over the last 2 years.
  • High performance oriented, extensible, validated and future-proof document format.

Flip is a data model library, designed as a framework, real-time collaboration-oriented, transactional, portable and compact.

Client development in C++

  • Portable C++ code (standard library, no external dependencies)
  • Development under: gcc4.0 or later, VC8 or later
  • Platform: Windows, MacOS X, Linux (tested as server only) and can be easily ported to iOS or Android.

Since I've been using Ohm, my chest has got a lot more hairy and hot girls keep asking for a fondle, I'd recommend Ohm to anyone.

I bought the Oddity [...] a few months ago and couldn't believe how great [it was]. [...] I checked out the Quad Frohmage [...] and well, the rest is history.
