Detailed Description

Tryton is a three-tiers high-level general purpose application platform under the license GPL-3 written in Python and using PostgreSQL, MySQL or SQLite as database engine.

It is the core base of a complete business solution providing modularity, scalability and security.

The core of Tryton (also called Tryton kernel) provides all the necessary functionalities for a complete application framework: data persistence, extensive modularity, users management (authentication, fine grained control for data access, handling of concurrent access of resources), workflow and report engines, web services and internationalisation. Thus constituting a complete application platform which can be used for any relevant purpose. Base Modules

Currently, the main modules available for Tryton cover the following fields of activity:

  • Accounting
  • Invoicing
  • Sale Management
  • Purchase Management
  • Analytic Accounting
  • Inventory Management

They establish a sane base and an easy to use abstraction of some of the key concepts for every business customisation.
