LibreCheck software announcement. CW-ed because of length. Show more
I have been working on some a program I call LibreCheck for a little while now. LibreCheck is free (libre) and open source software for logging people in places like day cares and Sunday-school at churches. It will be flexible enough to be used for many different situations such as conferences as well. The fact that it is free software means that you may change the code to make it work the way you want it to.
LibreCheck’s main technical goals are reliability, simplicity, and flexibility. Other software is complicated in design, which often leads to many bugs and general instability. They also generally set to work in certain settings, and since they are often proprietary, are not easily extensible to work in different situations. LibreCheck also is meant to be simple to use for the end user. It will be easy to install, easy to start, and easy to run.
I am mostly working on this first version on my own, but also with a friend who is not on Mastodon. @zath is learning basic programming currently, and likely will help in the future. He will build the first version of our website.
I plan to finish a basic functional alpha version by the end of 2018. A more complete beta version will be developed in the following months. After a stable and complete enough beta is ready, it will be tested in production for a while and improved before the public beta is released.
- Alpha: end of 2018
- Private beta: end of January 2019
- Public beta: March (?)
