[Sugar-devel] Sugar Network backend replacement

Hi all,

As you know, Somos Azucar team keeps supporting the initial
implementation of the Sugar Network since implementation in 2012 and
deployment in 2014. We've been looking for a path forward that would
allow to continue supporting the current installed base, as well as
provide a basis to build upon.

Initial implementation was a custom back-end made by Aleksey that has
proven reliable and powerful. However, without his involvement, I don't
feel in capacity to maintain it or improve it. This has limited our
ability to push forward with the dream that Sugar Network is.

So I'm always looking for a simpler / better supported backend that can
provide an API like we have for Sugar Network.

I've noticed a Flask project to offer a REST API on top of a SQLAlchemy
<https://github.com/prahladyeri/tiddly> database model. Perhaps this is
a path forward.

With this, we would have a path forward and out of legacy implementation.

Somos Azucar works on Sugar Network on a volunteer basis and so your
input would be appreciated on this approach.

Thanks in advance,
