Alternative to Homebase

My brother needed an application to track employees, locations and schedules. There are loads of application out there that do this, but he wanted one especially for scheduling teachers. I looked at lots of open source projects but none seem to do what I wanted so I opted to make one from scratch. This project has a built in calendar page where you can view all the schedules for your company by day, week or month. It uses the angular calendar library: https://mattlewis92.github.io/angular-calendar/#/kitchen-sink

It uses the async data pull to fill the calendar from the REST API. This project also has charts showing employee completion rates per month. It uses the highcharts library: https://www.npmjs.com/package/angular-highcharts

The resulting project is based at:

Start by creating your own business. This is a two step process where you enter your company information and then some information for logging you into the system. After you set yourself up with a company, you can start entering locations, then employees and then schedules. This application is modeled on the popular scheduling application Homebase. Homebase is a very nice project with loads of features and my application is nowhere near as complete. But, it is a start so have a look.

You can get the code from github:https://github.com/eddyod/scheduler

The backend REST API was made with Django which is also available on github: https://github.com/eddyod/django-rester

If you just want to demo the app, user the email: joe@user.com and for password use joe12345
