Offline Desktop software is a rare breed these days. Offline Accounting software even more so. Existing solutions like Tally and GNUCash are either paid or lack in terms of UX. This is why we need Frappe Books.
Cloud apps compromise the ownership of your data. All your data must go through a server and you are bound by limitations set by the server. Pricing could change anytime, and you don’t have the choice to use an older version. With traditional desktop apps, you have much more control over your data and you can keep using a version that works for you.
Frappe Books is free software. This means it comes with the four essential freedoms. You are allowed to run it as you wish, you can look at its source code and modify it.
Frappe Books is built with our homegrown framework FrappeJS based on NodeJS and bundled with Electron. But it is still designed in a way how a desktop software functions.
We have been building business software for over a decade now. Learning from our mistakes and picking the best parts of our flagship product ERPNext, we came up with a simple app that does one thing well, Accounting.
