Tendenci - A CMS for Nonprofits

Project description



The installation information below will still work for the master
branch, but if you are considering Tendenci, I'd suggest you try the
Tendenci 6 branch (not "master" but "tendenci6") and of course use the
project template located here


Tendenci 5.+ is the next iteration of a product started in 2001 and
released open source in 2012. It is built specifically for NPOs (Non
Profit Organizations.) We started with a focus completely on
associations but now being open source GPL it is much broader in scope.
It is a content management system (CMS) with powerful features for event
registration, membership management, donations, payments, email
integration and much more.

Tendenci allows membership management organizations to communicate,
manage and conduct transactions with web site visitors. Tendenci is easy
to use and offers many modules as one customizable software package. The
5.x version is open source and built on Django/Python/Postgres and



Got tired of spammers so pulled the demo. Sheesh people. Get a life.

Impatient Developer?

If you want to test it locally quickly (e.g. client demo etc), you can
try it ASAP three ways (do NOT use thse in production).

1) Vagrant Box
2) Virtual Machine Version here:
3) TKL version is out of date so pulled the link.

Developer Installing Tendenci?

Community forums for questions that may not fit in issues on github or
solutions to questions on installation. We check these more frequently
than the issues on github and it is also where you can read about the
Roadmap going forward. Your input is greatly appreciated! (Seriously -
this changing the world stuff is hard and we could use your input and
maybe a few pull requests too!)

Detailed installation docs at You will need to install
the server on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (or later) and Postgres 9.3 (or later.)
Cloud hypervisors work fine.

Dockers? We are using them in our test environments now. We'll have a
public docker file up soon in the registry. Testing
internally currently and I want it to come out on Django 1.6at a
minimum. So until we get the migrations set up please hang on. It is
based on the phusion/basebox so feel free to play with that in the
meanttime. Or make a container and do an install with netsetter on your
own docker.

Have you deployed Tendenci in a Production Environment? Tell us in the
forums please! There are no "trackers" in Tendenci as that goes against
our values. So we really only know if you have a site up if you tell us.

Humans Looking for a Hosted Solution?

Not a programmer and you just want to host it somewhere else? You can
ask your currentfavorite web developer who you already work with. Or do
a free trial on Cool with us either way. We'll even help
them set you up if needed. Geek to Geek.

Why Did We Make Tendenci Open Source?

Tendenci was built by the team at iteratively by releasing
the core for event registrations. We listened to our clients and over
the last 12+ years it has evolved. From LISTENING.

Our vision: "Connect and Oragnize the World's People" Our mission: "To
make Tendenci the number 1 platform for NPOs/NGOs/Arts organizations
