Lino is the suite of Python packages and applications maintained by Luc
Saffre. Luc is the developer of TIM, a framework for developing
database and business applications in small and medium-sized
organisations, and his long-term vision is to have Lino become the
successor for TIM.
- Applications — Although Lino is basically a library,
it also contains some applications: more
- Lino is the successor for TIM — (to be written)
- Why did you start your own project? — I have been writing customized database applications for over 10 years.

- Why the GPL license? — I decided to license Lino using the GPL because I believe that using the GPL

I like to give human names to my software projects because they are in
many respects like a person to me. more
- Introduction — There is currently no proper introduction to Lino, but if I happen to write
news items that might be understandable to other people than me, then I'll try
to mak them appear under this title. more
