Welcome to the Wiki!

This is a fork of the official FrontAccounting repository. This repository is setup to:

  1. Support the popular FrontAccounting docker image genebarker/frontaccounting;
    (currently defaults to 2.4.3 official)
  2. Serve as the home of my on-the-ground bug fixes, enhancements, and modifications done for clients; and
  3. Comply with GNU General Public License.

Branches and Workflow

      stuff FA team wants
  • unstable - Official repository's development code
  • master - Official repository's production code (releases are tagged)
  • fixes - My on-the-ground bug fixes and enhancements
  • sifa - Client specific modifications

The workflow is designed to:

  1. Use the official FrontAccounting repository as the baseline;
  2. Provide clean way to share my on-the-ground bug fixes and enhancements; and
  3. To separate out customer specific modifications.

My goal is to keep the fixes branch very close to the official master (with minimal code differences). The strategy for achieving this is to flow ideas back to the official team so that the improvements can make their way into an official release (and out of fixes!).

Currently, the fixes and sifa branches are based on the 2.3 version. The plan is to migrate up to 2.4 after the development activity settles down a bit. Forking from 2.3 long term is not viable.
