    This post is a reply to this old one.

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to let you know that I'm rewriting Component Organizer to make it cross platform and open source. I'm planning to release the code and executables by the end of this month. The current CO's website is now on http://3xdigital.com/comporg (my old free domain provider, uni.cc, went out of business). Here are some GUI screenshots (with dummy data) of what I've accomplished so far. Feedback is very welcomed!

    Some extra of columns needed:
    Location - to identify where the part is located, e.g. room/shelf/bin
    Restock Level - the minimum level to trigger a purchase order
    Flag - various coloured flags, e.g. when the restock level is triggered


    Another data base for equipment on loan:
    date, on loan to, location, phone number, email address

    Already done :)
    I called storage locations "containers" and displaying it on component's table it's optional. Also you can define a "low stock value" for each component's package and if you reach that number the row is marked with yellow colour. If some of component's package is out of stock the correspondent row is marked with red.

    One of the things I think would be pretty cool to have is Octopart integration but Im afraid I won't have the time to implement that at least in the near future. But once the code will be open source hopefully someone get interested in contributing to it.

    Great. Just in time for me to organize about 100,000 components this summer.
    Let me know when it is ready.

    Just to let you know that CO is finaly released and the source code is on Github!
    I finished it some time ago but I have been a bit lazy to share it on forums :eek:)
    Official website its here: http://3xbla.wordpress.com/component-organizer/

    Feel free to contribute!
    Im still very busy doing my MSc thesis which has nothing to do with CO, but I would really like to see some activity on CO development. The next main goal is to integrate it with Octopart (http://octopart.com/) and add a BOM manager for projects. I wrote some hints (in fact, very simple hints) on how to get started with that: https://github.com/3xdigital/Component-Organizer/wiki


    (can't I edit the first post? the info there is very outdated)
