SchoolTool project is a common information systems platform for school administration.
SchoolTool is a project to develop a common global school administration infrastructure that is freely available under an Open Source licence.
The vision is to create a platform that is equally compelling for schools and colleges in First and Third World countries, that supports best practices in school administration, and that is readily customized to comply with local regulatory requirements.
It is based primarily on Zope 3, with an HTML interface and a Web service interface in the REST architectural style.
Install step-by-step Instructions
OK, using the aforementioned shell script makes things easier, but there are still a few steps you need to pay attention to.
You need a C development environment ('build-essential' on Ubuntu) and Python development libraries ('python-dev' on Ubuntu).
You need the Python Imaging Library ('python-imaging' on Ubuntu) and the Python libxml2 bindings ('python-libxml2' on Ubuntu).
You need a very up to date version of Python setuptools, which will probably require downloading a new version of ez_setup.py and running that script as root.
Now you can download alpha2-install.sh to whatever directory you like to use for testing software and do chmod +x alpha2-install.sh to make it executable and then ./alpha2-install.sh.
Hopefully it will then set up the rest of your environment and give you some final instructions when it is done. You will probably get one error message when it runs the tests. Please ignore it.
