KennerCore is an open-source software ecosystem developed by Kenner Soft Service GmbH and distributed under GPLv3 License for free. KennerCore is designed for rapid development of web-based responsive business applications of any kind (ERP, PIM, CRM, DMS, MDM, DAM, etc.). It is an excellent tool for cost-effective and timely application development that comes with the powerful out-of-the-box functionality.

KennerCore is a single page application (SPA) with an API-centric, service-oriented architecture, and flexible data model based on configurable entities and relations. You can organize any data and business-related processes directly in KennerCore, many of them via a simple and user-friendly configuration.

For Whom Is KennerCore?

KennerCore is the best fit for businesses, who want to:

  • solve custom business problems;
  • store data and organize business processes;
  • set up and use a middleware to connect with the third-party systems;
  • create added value and best experience for their employees, customers, and partners;
  • extend the functionality of the existing software infrastructure.

What Are KennerCore Add-Ons?

The following add-on applications are available on the KennerCore basis:

Each application may be used as a single instance and/or may be extended with numerous modules.

What Is On Board?

Here is a KennerCore package description in detail:

Feature Description
Dashboards Use multiple dashboards to control all main activities in the system.
Module Manager It allows you to install and/or update any module directly from the administration panel. Just choose the version you want to use.
Entity Manager You can configure the data model directly from the administration panel, create new or edit existing entities and set relations of different types.
Dynamic field logic You can configure the conditions that make some fields invisible, read-only or editable.
Layout Manager Use it to configure any User Interface in the system or to show up the panels for related entities, via drag-and-drop.
Label Manager You can edit any label in the system, in all languages you want to use.
Configurable navigation Use the drag-and-drop functionality to set up the navigation as you wish, also separately for each user, if needed.
Scheduled Jobs You can configure, which jobs should be run by cron and at what schedule.
Notifications Set up a system or e-mail notifications for different events in the system.
Data import and export You can import or export any data to any and from any entity in the system, even those you have just created.
Advanced mass updates Choose the entries to be updated, set the new values and perform a mass update.
Advanced search and filters You can configure the filters and search criteria as you wish, and save them, if you want to use the saved filters later.
Portals Use this additional layer to give access to third parties to your system. Use portal roles to restrict their access.

  2. Change recursively the user and group ownership for project files:

    chown -R webserver_user:webserver_user my-kennercore-project/

    webserver_user – depends on your webserver and can be one of the following: www, www-data, apache, etc.

  3. Configure the crontab as described below.
