metasfresh - free open soure ERP

metasfresh is a free (as in GPL) open source ERP.
No freemium-"stuff" and no open-core. Just one enterprise edition that is free for all.
metasfresh is running with docker, postgresql, java (spring-boot) and javascript (redux).
If you are interested in any of these, we have a ton of stuff to do for you in every corner of the system...development, performance-tuning, test-engeneering, reporting, dev-ops, translating, documenting..all the stuff you might well be much better at than we are.
Help us and show off your skills on github to impress your future boss (unless we hire you ourselves that is..because we are not particularly bossy).

We release a new metasfresh version on (almost) every friday; follow us on and be delighted by those cute animals we pick for each release.

Visit us on to get started.

Few weeks ago, We had a brilliant discussion on Monopoly of Google. Days after that I got a leg injury and doctor recommended me to stick to bed for atleast a week. So I developed Nomoogle, a small idea to help people get rid of Google addiction.

MousePaw Media is looking for C++ and Python developers who are interested in working on unusual, cutting-edge libraries, tools, and games.

Current Projects

Here's a look at a few of our current projects:

PawLIB 1.1: High-performance, memory efficient containers and utilities for the C++ language. We're expanding our testing library (Goldilocks), improving and expanding our data structures (Flex), making message output a delight again (IOChannel), and building a tool for streamlining the design of CLI interfaces (Blueshell).

Omission is a game written in Python 3. It currently uses the Kivy GUI toolkit, but needs to be re-implemented in Qt5 (PySide2).

DiamondQuest is a brand new Python 3 game, which will use the Qt5 (PySide2) GUI toolkit. We're especially needing someone with pixel-art skills to create the retro-style graphics.

Ratscript: A brand new language which seeks to combine an innovative, obvious syntax with a powerful combination of paradigms. Ratscript is being designed specifically for the next generation of game development. Takes cues from Python and Rust, among others.

Anari: A vector-based animation engine implemented in C++, allowing for memory-efficient interactive animations to be deployed onto old and new hardware alike.

Infiltrator is an upcoming Python 3 party game. We have an earlier version implemented in C++, but we want to recreate it in Python3 and Qt5 (PySide2).

Our Stack

  • C++14 (C++17 proposed)
  • Compilers: Clang and GCC
  • CMake
  • Python 3
  • Qt 5/PySide 2
  • CPGF
  • Eigen
  • Git
  • Phabricator

Getting Involved

See something you like? Jump right in! We have a robust development platform, centered around a carefully-honed Phabricator instance.

For more information, visit or contact developers (at) mousepawmedia (dot) com. You can also ask questions and join the discussion us on the Lobby chatroom on our Phabricator.

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters
Beautiful is better than ugly
Explicit is better than implicit
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it
