Based on iKaaro

ITWS is a built on top of iKaaro. It adds features to help communication and
ease of use.

iKaaro is a complete CMS featuring

  • Multilingual contents
  • Full search capabilities thanks to Xapian
  • Versioning of all contents and metadata
  • A set of modules: agenda, forums, tracker, etc...
  • A wiki which can generate ODT books (using lpOD project libraries)
  • User and role management
  • Flexible workflow engine
  • One-click on line editing (external editor)

iKaaro (and the itools libraries) main technical characteristics are:

  • RESTFul architecture
  • Built around data: the object database is based on file system with data in its original format
  • Heavy use of standards (iCal, XHTML, XML)
  • Use of git as the transaction manager and versioning system


Those dependencies shall be satisfied using pip, but also check itools and ikaaro's needs before installing, see itools README and ikaaro's README
