Welcome to Nitric Software Laboratory

We are a small creative software company based in Cape Town. We love Python, Ubuntu GNU/Linux and all things open source. We have been in operation since 2000 and have loads of experience creating all sorts of internet-based business systems for all kinds of enterprises.

We offer specialised software development services for business. These are the core technologies we use for making web applications:

  •     Python
  •     MySQL
  •     CherryPy
  •     Mako Templating
  •     jQuery, Bootstrap, etc.

We’ve also made some desktop applications using wxWidgets, Gtk3, and desktop & mobile apps using Kivy. We also maintain a few long-running systems that were written in PHP & MySQL.

Aside from doing custom development we also consult as Linux system administrators.

And with our extensive deployment infrastructure we’re able to provide our development customers with robust hosting solutions, extensive monitoring, failover and backup services. Nitric has Linode and cloud servers in SA and all over the world.
