We've open sourced

edited May 2014 in General

After numerous conversations with customers, friends, investors and would-be interested parties, we've decided to open source our software and continue to grow the consultancy side of our business.

This means that you can now get a completely free (Apache licence), PHP/Symfony2 billing suite. It supports payment/gateway modules (though gateways will need to be written), invoices, expenses, project and inventory tracking, bulk data management and a great UI. Although there are bugs, the software uses a modern code base with PDO and other security features.

This software will be maintained in our spare time, so of course, PRs and issues are welcome via our Github page and forum.

Those with a SaaS account can be transferred easily. Wait for an email about this.

Paid support/development/consultancy are also available if you want to support Loading Deck :)

Forum: http://community.loadingdeck.com/

Github: https://github.com/LoadingDeck/Billing

Note: if you're still seeing the old website with pricing/online signup, clear your DNS cache.

  • It seems it doesn't come with any modules. How to obtain the modules?

    The modules we were using as part of the SaaS were licensed to us from a third party for use in our own environment only. So, sadly, modules will need to be coded fresh. However, if you look at the code that calls the modules, you'll see the modules can be quite similar to another popular system.

    Well done sir. I think open source with paid support and private development could take this project quite far.

    Modules are very similar to the ones used for WHMCS, they just need some tweaking and they should work.

    Sorry for question here, I have installed LoadingDeck on one of my servers. I followed steps as mentioned in GIT readme. When I try to open website it shows me directory listing and initial page is not shown.

    I am new to Symphony, so there might be some simple configuration that I am missing.

    can anybody help?

    thanks in advance.

    Make sure your apache is setup to AllowOveride ("AllowOveride All") on your install directory, and make sure you have the .htaccess file that was committed to GitHub after it was initially released.

    To those of you having trouble installing it, please make sure you've done the following:

    • Pointed your web server to the "web" folder inside Symfony
    • If you're using Apache, have AllowOverride set to All
    • If you're not using Apache, have rewritten all requests to the app.php file.

    If you're having further difficulties, you can change the rewriting to app_dev.php to see the error, or check app/logs/prod.log.

    For the record, I'm happy to help as much as I can - and have set up a forum in addition to the Github page, but @rmlhhd was asking for help on Skype (and often asks for help on Skype), which is something I think I'm entitled to charge for.

    RuntimeException: Failed to write cache file "/var/www/app/cache/dev/classes.php".

    Getting this on app_dev.php after removing the localhost check, and it shows me the directory listing. Any ideas?

    Edit: Apache has AllowOverride to All, and mod_rewrite is installed.

    If you need me to install it, it will cost £25. Drop me an email with your server login details and billing info if you want me to do this.

  • gbshousegbshouse Member, Provider

    @jhadley - it would be nice if you can extend the documentation with some quick tutorials how to add custom payment gateway module etc.

  • jhjh Member

    @gbshouse I have some time this weekend. I'll see what I can do.

  • VMNodeVMNode Member

    I will have to try this out for sure.
