CRM application for non-profit organizations

Project description

basxconnect-ci Translation status


A core implementation of a CRM system for non-profit organizations.

Documentation at readthedocs


Providing non-profit organizations with a code framework that helps to build tools for managing their data.


Create and maintain a django-based framework which implements:

  • A standardized UI concept based on IBM's carbon design system
  • CRM-like core data models which are open to extension
  • Code building blocks and shortcuts which allow easy customization and extension

Core values

  • Open source development (this, however does not include free support)
  • Use of existing and proven technology where possible while minimizing external dependencies
  • Focus on workflows and tasks for Non-Profit organizations (User experience)
  • Writing code and APIs for developers, not for website administrators (Developer experience)
  • Development does not center around a final product but around the tools to create a product (because every product is different)

What we have so far

  • Integration of the core parts of carbon design in django ("like bootstrap for django")
  • CRUD-framework ("Quick generation of create/read/update/delete views")
  • HTML-layout framework which allows a more flexible hooking-in than the standard HTML-rendering mechanisms ("DOM on the server side")
  • Core model to manage people, communication and relationships
  • Demo project which implements a bare-bone version of a product (this repository)

What we still need to do

  • Adding a workflow engine which allows code-based configuration of manual and automated workflows (e.g. uploading a file, waiting for approval from a certain role, sending out an email automatically, etc.)
  • Improving the existing code base to have better support for extendability
  • Write documentation where necessary and add code-examples and how-to's
  • Implement revisions completely to allow going to a certain date and maybe display diffs

Other TODOs:

  • Explain more why basxConnect is necessary and the difference to alternative solutions

We would like to thank the following projects for their work, they provide a valuable base for basxConnect:
