Components of the Lino framework¶
Until 2021 we used GitHub (https://github.com/lino-framework) to host our source repositories. In 2021 we moved to GitLab (https://gitlab.com/lino-framework). Check Moving from GitHub to GitLab when in doubt whether your clone is up to date.
lino package contains the core of the framework and includes the
Standard Plugin Library, a plugin library with basic features like system
users, notifications, comments, printing and others. These features are
included in most real-world Lino applications.
