Libres - Python Reservation Library

Python library to reserve stuff in a calendar.

Not a replacement for Outlook or Google Calendar, but a library to manage reservations in the following use cases:

  • Manage meeting rooms in a company. Users reserve the rooms themselves without an authority confirming/denying their reservations.
  • Manage nursery spots. Parents apply for a spot in the nursery for their kid. Someone at the nursery goes through the applicants and decides who gets the spot. Parents may add an application to the waitinglist.
  • Manage community facilities. Citizens see the availability of facilities online and call the municipality to reserve a facility. The management is done internally (maybe through an already existing software). A readonly calendar shows the state on the website.

 Libres as such does not provide any user interface for reservations. That is the job of other projects depending on Libres.
