Frappe Books is a desktop based accounting application built for small businesses.

Free accounting tools are not easily available and most tools require a server setup. Frappe Books is an alternative to GNU Cash and Tally and is built with a modern UI.

Frappe Books is built on FrappeJS which is a Node + Electron + Vue based next generation web framework. FrappeJS brings together all the learnings and goodies from Frappe.
Frappe Books is completely free and can be used by small businesses as well as freelancers and is packed with the following features:

  • Invoicing and Payments
