Welcome to ViUR 3

From data to digital: ViUR, the Python framework for modern web development.

ViUR is an open source software development framework that was created to fulfill both designers and developers needs and requirements. It provides a clear concept for implementing agile data management software. It's written in Python™ and already attracted a steady growing community constantly helping and improving ViUR.

ViUR consists of several modules that can be combined according to the requirements. Beside the core modules there are additional ones that can be added for different requirements. Some modules can also be used independently in different contexts.

ViUR Core Modules
