Abelujo is a free ('libre') software whose goal is to help bookshops, either professionals and associations, to manage their stock of books, newspapers, CDs and other objects.

While there is many features to try out, the software is considered in a testing stage. If you too dreamed of such a tool, you should contact us. We'll check together that what we are going will suit your needs.

We have book sources for german, french and spanish books. More will come, but if you want another one, the sooner you tell us, the sooner you'll have it.

Current features

What you can test so far:

  • search and add books to your database. You can search by an internet search with keywords, by the isbn/ean or by an advanced search.
  • you can use an usb barcode scanner,
  • you can search, manipulate your stock and have a quick insight with interactive charts,
  • manage deposits that you established with editors,
  • do inventories of your shelves,
  • see the history of what happened on your stock,
  • be notified with alerts when a book reaches its minimum threshold or when you sold a book that is both in your stock and in a deposit,
  • create lists of books and export them to other formats (pdf, csv).

Planned features

We base our development work on solid specifications we wrote. See the specifications page.
