Self-service Office resource Locator and Updater

Project description

Solu is a simple web application meant for making it easy to find colleagues, meeting rooms and other resources in an office. It has a self service model without any authentication or permission checks, where anyone can find and update any resource’s information.

The name “Solu” comes from “Self-service Office Locator and Updater”. It is also a word in the Finnish language and means “cell” (biology).


  • easy_install solu

  • (OR if you don’t have setuptools installed, download the sources and then: python install)


  • solu deploy

  • solu demodb

  • solu runserver localhost 8080


  • Create the database and write settings to ini file: solu deploy --url="sqlite:///solu.db" --data="./data" (you might want to use a different database engine and absolute data url)

  • Copy your office map file into ./data/maps/map.png file

  • Either serve with Werkzeug’s webserver, for example: solu runserver localhost 8080

  • Or create a WSGI configuration file that gets invoked with your favorite WSGI gateway. Sample configuration:
