Is there an open source POS (point of sale) system out there? Last time I set one up, there was something called LIME POS (or something like that) but it seems to not be around any more.

Use case: looking to set up a POS for an anarchist infoshop.

@klaatu Check these out:

The list is a couple or three years old, but I'm sure you'll find something

@scottnesbitt Perfect, thanks. Not sure why that article didn't come up in my initial search.

@klaatu Your toot nudged open the door to a memory of that article, and I dug up a bookmark that I'd saved for someone a couple of years back. The old 8-bit processor in my head does work sometimes ...

@scottnesbitt BTW, you going to in Christchurch?

@klaatu Unfortunately, I won't be able to. There's a release at work that week, and as usual there will be last-minute stuff to work on.

Strangely enough, I will be in ChCh in March for a family trip (which was supposed to happen the week of LCA, but I was forced to change)

@scottnesbitt Yep, headed to LCA, then home for a week, then Raleigh for work. It'll be weird to be there NOT in October.

@klaatu That's a bit of bouncing around! Remember to dress for the Raleigh weather -- it ain't summer there!

@klaatu lemme know if you find something, I think we might see more use for this case in the coming years in my organizing

@klaatu Odoo has a Point of Sale app:

If this piques your interest, check out the Odoo Community Association:

A great integrator to work with is Eficent, based in Barcelona:

@klaatu C3 uses something like that, see c3cashdesk on github.

On our lan party were using this with a 22" touch screen

I used it also one time with a Barcode scanner and EAN Barcodes.
Worked perfect.
