Web interface

Index  Previous  Next

Crypt-o provides a Web interface to allow users access Crypt-o on various desktop and mobile systems using a Web browser.

By default Crypt-o Web interface is turned off. To enable and configure Crypt-o Web interface, open the Crypt-o system options on the Web interface page.


Crypt-o Web interface is essentially a cross-platform Web application. To run it as the application you need to open the Web interface in Chrome or Safari and add a link to the Home screen/Desktop. When you click/tap the link, Crypt-o will run as the web application.

It is possible to customize the Web interface for your needs.


First create a user sub-folder in the web folder inside the installation folder of Crypt-o Server.


To add a custom styling, create the user.css file in the user folder. Then add your custom CSS rules to this file.
To add a custom logo to the main page, put the clogo.png file to the user folder.
To replace a standard image,  put the image file with the same name as the standard image to the user folder.


If you do the customization using this approach, it will be preserved during updates of Crypt-o.
