We were more than happy to develop the European Space Software Repository (ESSR) for ESA (European Space Agency), an information web portal to promote reuse of Software, including Open Source Software, which was launched in September 2015.

The ESSR web portal contains a list of projects, search function and blog functionality among others. Most projects are owned by ESA and contributions are handled by ESA internally. However, non-ESA owners can request, through the tool, to have their project added by filling a form.

Like the majority of new web applications, ESSR is built on a framework, for better maintainability and structure. Innobyte chose Symfony2, a modern framework, which is mature and stable enough to be safely used in production.

Several technologies were used to implement the functionalities of the project: Symfony, ElasticSearch, Compass, jQuery, jQuery UI, relational databases and agile software development.

European Space Software Repository is a web portal to promote reuse of the (open-source) software and to provide all parties involved in the European Space software development (in particular SMEs) with access to the results of previous ESA investments in the software development. Innobyte has been carrying out the portal implementation for ESA. Working with Innobyte was a great pleasure: they are very productive, very responsive to the customer needs, are straight to the point and have high level of flexibility. Their technical expertise is excellent.
