What is Lino?¶
Lino is a framework for developing customized database applications without getting locked into a proprietary vendor. It is a sustainably free software product governed and maintained by the Lino Software Foundation.
Lino is suitable for writing complex applications. For example Lino Welfare has 155 database models in 65 plug-ins and 16 user types.
Lino encourages sharing: the Lino Software Foundation maintains a directory of Lino applications that can be used out of the box (by hosting providers) or by development providers (as a base for their own application).
