As part of a conversation with Mikel Cordovilla, active OpenOlitor developer, we investigated different possibilities for collaboration between OFN and OpenOlitor.
Characteristics of the Tools
OpenOlitor is also an open source project. It’s a well established tool to manage CSAs in Switzerland and currently expanding to other countries. The German version is the one mostly used and the French version is about to be ready.
OpenOlitor will be a source of valuable knowledge for the development of the OFN’s Subscriptions module. We agreed we will continue the conversation about functionality in more detail in the near future with a more appropriate group of people.
Mikel sounded really interested and quickly suggested a simple way the 2 tools could be integrated: make openolitor users self-registration possible through OFN. I have created a OFN wishlist item for that: Allow other tools to rely on OFN for user registration
This topic is part of the larger integrations scope recently discussed here:
- Enabling OFN to integrate with external systems (POS, standalone websites, Odoo ERP modules, other plateforms with DFC sandard, etc.)
Other posts with references to Openolitor are:
