UniHelp e.V. - a registered student association in Magdeburg/Germany - announces the release of xPyrus, a framework for operating communities and document sharing platforms.
The framework is based on PHP 5 and PostgreSQL and has been running the students' community UniHelp.de (a platform for exchanging study-related documents and connecting students) in Magdeburg since 2002.
The entire framework is released under the GNU Affero General Public License v3 at xpyrus.org. A Unix-based server is required for installation and use of all features, however, a hosting service can be provided by UniHelp e.V. on request, especially for student organizations.
