Satchmo is an open source online store management system using the Django web application framework. It was initially designed as a Python based project in order to avoid some of the perceived common pitfalls and shortcomings of similar PHP based projects. The Django framework was chosen as a foundation because it provides a number of useful, robust, tested features. It is freely available under the BSD License
