[openFATE 311127] Share your Kraft
Feature changed by: Klaas Freitag (kfreitag)
Feature #311127, revision 3
Title: Share your Kraft

Hackweek VI: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Klaas Freitag (kfreitag)
Partner organization:

Kraft is a KDE software to manage business documents like offers and
invoices in the small business, see 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.
