Frappe Framework

Tutorials, API documentation and Model Reference

Frappe is a full stack web application framework written in Python, Javascript, HTML/CSS with MySQL as the backend. It was built for ERPNext but is pretty generic and can be used to build database driven apps.

The key differece in Frappe compared to other frameworks is that Frappe is that meta-data is also treated as data and is used to build front-ends very easily. Frappe comes with a full blown admin UI called the Desk that handles forms, navigation, lists, menus, permissions, file attachment and much more out of the box.

Frappe also has a plug-in architecture that can be used to build plugins to ERPNext.

Frappe Framework was designed to build ERPNext, open source ERP for managing small and medium sized businesses.
