[New: openFATE 311127] Share your Kraft
Feature added by: Klaas Freitag (kfreitag)

Feature #311127, revision 1
Title: Share your Kraft

Hackweek VI: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Klaas Freitag (kfreitag)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Kraft is a KDE software to manage business documents like offers and invoices
in the small business, see http://volle-kraft-voraus.de for more details about
its features. This Hackweek project is about sharing Kraft. Nowadays, teams are
often distributed over various places with just a internet line between work
mates. The challenge is to make Kraft work in that scenario. One might propose
to solve this using a internet mysql instance at a hoster, but if the line is
weak, this does not scale. Kraft will keep its client side database and only
share data to not suffer from being offline or in the countryside. Another
requirement is to be able to install the Kraftserver at a cheap and standard
hosting, meaning PHP and maybe mysql, but not root server etc etc. In detail
that means four problems to solve: 1. Numbercycle sharing: Each document
(invoice etc.) needs an unique number in an organization. The Kraftserver will
create these and hand over to the clients. 2. Document sharing: The Kraftserver
will care for document sharing between the Kraft instances, details tbd. 3.
Catalog sharing: Kraft knows the concept of template catalogs. These are going
to be shared between the instances over the Kraftserver. 4. Address sharing:
This is a problem to be solved, however this won't be subject of this hackweek
project. The owncloud project seems to be a good starting point for the
Kraftserver as it already brings in some very useful features such as users and
groups and WebDAV capabilities.



Use Case:
People will be able to use Kraft on one document pool and share templates.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Because our platform needs useful free applications for people to
use.
