It was brought up at the last meeting that we should try to create some PHP based electronics inventory software, major features would be:

Required Features:
  1. Allow you to add your electronic items (components/etc)
  2. Associate some bin/tag/location information
  3. Associate a cost
  4. Indicate whether you would be willing to sell/trade/lend this item
  5. Make the items searchable by regional location, component information, cost

Dreams:
  • Automatically parse major electronics vendor receipts
  • Assessment of part value/actual worth
  • Barcode linked system with hardware scanner that would allow you to list items in a barcoded bin

That's all I've got that I remember, anyone else want to feature creep for me?

Store datasheets or links to other documentation or related code

possibly also expand to mechanical parts?

Today I saw the RepRap parts lister, which is similar to what I want to build to track electronic parts inventory:

http://parts.reprap.org/about

They've got a really cool set up that builds parts lists for the RepRap boards, very nicely laid out and best of all open source!

Just posting thoughts, Branden suggested using this site in general, but it would also make sense to link to it:

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128773600

We could consider bothering the developer of http://www.goupkeep.com/ to see if we could fork the project.
