πŸ“œ Testimonial

This is my first time contributing to a public repo and I have quite enjoyed it. If you're a first-time-contributor the community is very helpful and can help you progress. Since I have been helping in this repo, I have also learnt a few things myself. The owner of the repo is active and is always willing to help.

Also, if I'm around and you're stuck give us a shout. I'll help if I can. @blips5

πŸ“– History

I want to learn!

Months ago, I was searching github for a point of sales solution that used Python. What bothered me was that many of the applications I found were not ideal. Some required Posgres with the expectation that a user would already have this installed, others had codebases that were a mess of spaghetti code, yet others were django-based accounting monsters ...

I decided to try making my own solution, modeled after a client request, I had once recived. I Made it flask-based with SQLalchemy and SQLite. You can instantly get started with no hassle, switching to something more powerful when you want to (since it uses an ORM)

For the UI, we used the latest, bootstrap4, fa5 and jq3. Interestingly enough, I had two shop owners try it and they were very impressed with the ease of use.

It is still in devolopment and supports instant lookup. Long story short, with some programming skills, you can solve some everyday problems. And yes, no cdn, all libs are bundled so that you can use it completely offline

🚧 Developing Modules

Modules are found in the modules folder.

A typical structure is as follows:


You must ensure that

  • The view is named
  • The info is named info.json
  • The module folder and the folder inside templates both have the same name
  • Blueprints must be named <nameofmodulefolder>_blueprint, in this demo apple_blueprint

And ... the app will load all the modules, just make sure in info.json you keep url_prefix, type, name, and fa-icon

For the time being it's best to look into existing modules and do the same.


Why do we need another folder in templates?

Flask loads all templates in one namespace. If you specify apple/index.html flask will load the index.html in the apple folder in templates
