The Frappe Newsletter - January 2023
February 1, 2023
And just like that, January comes to an end. 🙃
2023 has already gotten us on our toes with all the hustle and bustle around. But before we get carried away, let’s hit the pause and catch our breath with this month’s newsletter.
A look into the Frappeverse!
In case you are curious, here’s a cool trivia for you guys. 😉
FRAPPE = FRamework + APPs.
ERPNext has been Frappe’s flagship product for the past 15 years. But from the very beginning, our Founder, Rushabh, had the vision to create a whole universe of products using the Frappe Framework, and that's precisely what we have delivered!
Last year, our team shipped a collection of new Frappe products. We like calling them part of Frappeverse.
Frappeverse is the world of amazing products, tools, libraries, and services we have created over the years. During our webinar last week, Faris- Product Engineering Lead at Frappe took it upon himself to walk us through the story of Frappe’s inception and gave us insights on how things are spanning out now. If you missed out on the fun, no worries! We have got you covered on our YouTube channel- watch the replay here.
Also, do not forget to check out our collection of useful products and services and find the best that suits your business needs.
Stay ahead with Frappe LMS' monthly feature drops 🚀
Frappe LMS is our user-friendly and completely open-source learning management system. With its sleek interface and straightforward backend, creating courses and adding lessons (like articles, videos, quizzes, and more) is easier than it ever was.
Jannat - the product owner of Frappe LMS, makes sure to bring you fresh new features every month so that you always have new and exciting ways to improve your learning and teaching experiences.
Some of the recent feature releases are:
- The new search function just got even better with a quick shortcut key (CMD + K or CTRL + K) to find your desired course in no time.
- A visible course count next to each tab, so you know exactly how many courses fall under each one.
- We're making it easy for you to get started with your new LMS instance! Our onboarding steps will guide you through setting up your first course, with a helpful header to steer you in the right direction after each step.
And the list goes on… All of these feature releases are logged by Jannat in this section.
In another exciting news, our February webinar will feature a live demo of Frappe LMS. Keep an eye on your inbox for all the details. ✌️
