I need an open-source POS solution for a client. They have a small cafeteria-type restaurant + gift shop. Currently they are using a craptastic closed-source commercial solution that offers no support despite requiring a huge service contract.
Lots of bonus points for something web-based, since the POS terminals they have are rather low-end.
FWIW, we've tried the following:
- Adempiere + Posterita
- OpenBravo POS
- L’âne (because the developer is local-ish)
- OFBiz (both the web POS and the java client)
Posterita comes the closest to being what we want (web-based, AJAX-y, etc.), but development has gone closed-source apparently. OpenBravo POS is probably the most functional, but it's difficult to figure out how to do much of anything with it. OFBiz has a nice, simple POS app, but it's horribly buggy (and rather slow too).
Given an infinite amount of free time, I'd probably hack on the Adempiere + Posterita (last open-source release) combo, but, well, time is not on my side here...
