Karakolas – software application to help consumer groups
Brief Description Karakolas is a software application aimed for management of local consumer groups that facilitates managerial tasks such as contacting suppliers, organizing delivers and contacting and coordinating with other consuming groups. It was developed through Python and javascript with code open for collaborative improvements.

It is still constantly being updated long after its release in 2012. The project was initiated by members of a consumer group in order to tackle their own problems and improve their efficiency, and was made available to other consumer groups throughout development to spread the benefits of the program around.
