About Tellico

Tellico is a KDE application for organizing your collections. It provides default templates for books, bibliographies, videos, music, video games, coins, stamps, trading cards, comic books, and wines.

Tellico allows you to enter your collection in a catalogue database, saving many different properties like title, author, etc. Two different views of your collection are shown. On the left, your entries are grouped together by any field you like, allowing you to see how many are in each group. On the right, selected fields are shown in column format, allowing you to sort by any field. On the bottom is a customizable HTML view of the current entry. The entry editor is a dialog box where you enter the data. Check out the screenshots.

Tellico keeps things simple, so no database server is needed. The data is saved in XML format, which makes for easy parsing, portability, and styling. It will run on any platform which KDE supports, most commonly Linux. Tellico is licensed under the GNU General Public License, giving you the freedom to modify and distribute the source code.

If you download Tellico and like it, do let me know. I'm happy to try to accommodate any suggestions. Also, if you package Tellico for a distribution which isn't available elsewhere, I'd be happy to host it. If you have translation updates, please pass them along to the KDE translation teams. I do have to say that Tellico is a hobby for me, and it is released without any guarantees or warranties. It may crash a lot for you, it may not do anything that you find useful.
