Travel Support Program management application

Build Status Coverage Status


This is a Ruby on Rails based application to manage the requests and reimbursements from travel help programs of free software organizations like the openSUSE Travel Support Program, the GNOME's Conference Travel Subsidy Program or the KDE e.V. Travel Cost Reimbursement initiative.

Although been developed initially at the openSUSE Team at SUSE, the goal is to write a generic application including all the common features so it can be extended and adapted to fulfill the needs of any organization. This is achieved using widely used and flexible components like Bootstrap for the frontend layout or Devise for user authentication.

For a more detailed explanation you can refer to the ABOUT file, in which 'the 6 Ws' are developed. That is: who, what, when, where, why and how (yes, we already know that 'how' does not start with 'W', but we didn't invented the name).
