at a glance

Say you charge a seasoned software architect to develop the cloud platform that should exist, but because of our rush-to-market world, nobody has ever taken the time to make exist:

Octoboxy is kind of like Wordpress…

  • but written in Python

  • without the polished, point-and-click user interface

  • with stacks of high-end features designed for modern apps

Do you need a cloud framework in which to launch your own unique software project?

Read on.

What Is Octoboxy?

Python is the programming language of science and engineering.

Django is the standard platform for web apps in Python.

But Django doesn’t go far enough.

Octoboxy is a cloud app framework built on top of Django.

Our framework has been used to power many projects, including lost and found services at massive outdoor festivals. Our own in-house deployment currently hosts 20 separate domains, from simple marketing funnels to a full e-commerce bookstore:

Designed For Python Engineers

You’re a brilliant engineer.

You’ve developed a powerful tool and you’re ready to bring it to the public. You decide a cloud app is the way to go. Like many engineers, you’re coding in Python. Like most folks building apps in Python, you find your way to the Django Project.

But then you find Django’s account management features are under-developed. Their advanced data structures are non-existent. Background processing and asset management are likewise not in-scope on their project, though they are part of yours.

You could track down literally dozens of extensions and 3rd party libraries and spend a year building your own cloud around Django.

Or, you could start your project with our cloud-ready framework that already has it all.

With built-in account management, asset management, replication, e-commerce, and other features, we provide everything you need to make your project into a full, modern, cloud application.

Our full feature list is pretty intense. Just on a high level:

  • Assets
    • built-in digital asset management system
  • Background
    • continuous background processing and integrity testing of your data
  • Faces
    • unified control over all the the pages and views for one or multiple web properties
  • Frame
    • APIs, soft references, and other advanced building blocks
  • Friends
    • in-database encryption for your user’s personally identifiable information
  • Taxonomy
    • sophisticated, cached, hierarchical data structures
  • Trades
    • e-commerce with double-entry book keeping

Octoboxy has over seven years of development and is used to solve real problems for real organizations.

Who Uses Octoboxy?

Fiindex: The Found Item Index

Fiindex is the lost and found management system used by Burning Man, an outdoor event of roughly 70,000 attendees taking place every autumn in the arid deserts of northern Nevada. Our software revolutionized the lost and found workflow, cutting wait queues from hundreds of people to only a few.

The Latter Earth

Tales of Latter Earth is an eBook storefront selling immersive fantasy adventures to discerning readers of fine fiction. Our framework automatically assembles entire folders of assets into eBooks for all popular e-readers, no matter how often the writer tinkers with their art.
