What is contractualSugar? ========================= An easy way to manage contracts Why was contractualSugar created? ================================= For lack of a decent free software alternative to the commercial contract management behemoths. On whose shoulders was contractualSugar based? ============================================== As a contract management facility, it is necessary to store the metadata associated with executed contracts somewhere safe and efficient. The obvious choice is a database. Rather than hardcoding a particular database as the storage base, contractualSugar uses an ORM (Object Relational Mapper) called SQLAlchemy to talk to various databases.
