OrangeHRM Announces the release of Open Source 4.0

We are excited to announce the new version of OrangeHRM Open Source 4.0 will be released in the middle of June, 2017.

One of the main highlights of this new version is the opening up of 40+ REST APIs. These REST APIs are for the Admin, PIM, Leave & Time modules respectively.

What are the aims of 4.0?

Our primary objective for 4.0 is to empower our developer community to build applications that can enrich our ecosystem. We already have a couple of the beta testers who are creating applications that will interface with third party tools.

OrangeHRM app store was created for our community members who would like to monetize their applications”. Said Sujee Saparamadu CEO and Founder of OrangeHRM “ With a 3.5 Million user base we will be able to market these applications that will enhance the productivity of our clients.”

How can you learn more?

There have already been a number of sample applications created for our community. You can download the sample app today from here and try it out for yourself - if you have any feedback or questions, get in touch. These sample app’s show how to use the REST APIs.

OrangeHRM has also been made available for “api-client-PHP” which eases the use of these REST APIs.  You can download the User guide for the API’s here.

This is really exciting for us, and our community. Having a feature rich OrangeHRM API set is like giving an empty canvas to a painter - the opportunities for creativity are endless. Said Lawrence Knowles Chief Product Officer at OrangeHRMI am expecting our community to build and develop some fantastic applications that will revolutionize the HR domain.”

We are continuously in the process of updating the REST APIs, and we will be updating our community with the latest progressions on our blog, so keep your eye out for further news.
