Rattail: Software for Retailers

Welcome to the Rattail project.

Rattail is a collection of free software designed for use in retail environments. It is licensed under the GNU Affero General Public License, version 3.

This Trac instance mostly exists to offer a public view of the code, and for tickets relating to the code. Click the Browse Source button above to view the code. Each project may be checked out locally with syntax like:

git clone

..where you'd replace rattail_locsms with whatever you were after. Here is the list of repositories you can clone in this way.


Documentation remains largely unwritten/unpublished or outdated, and generally unorganized. To avoid making the problem even worse, this Trac wiki is not yet used for documentation purposes at all (although that may change some day). In the meantime please direct your attention to the "official" Rattail Wiki.

However some of the Python software packages have documentation of their own. A copy of these docs is re-built for a given package whenever a new commit happens via the Rattail Buildbot; here is the list of package docs.

For a complete list of local wiki pages, see TitleIndex.

There aren't really any community-oriented resources yet; for now you may email lance@… with your questions.
