grouprise consists of several components:
grouprise uses the Django Framework for most of its operations.
- Task Runner
A worker process executes periodic or time consuming tasks (e.g. sending email notifications). It is based on huey.
A database (e.g. PostgreSQL, MySQL or SQLite) is used for storing almost everything (except for media uploads).
- Media Storage
Uploaded media (images, documents, …) are stored locally in the filesystem.
The uWSGI application server connects grouprise with the web server.
- Web Server
The web server (e.g. apache2 or nginx) serves the content provided by grouprise to its users.
- LMTP Server
The integrated LTMP server handles incoming mails and injects them into the grouprise application.
- Mail Server
The external mail server (e.g. Postfix or Exim) delivers outgoing emails to external recipients and transfers incoming mails to the integrated LTMP Server.
- Matrix Server
grouprise can send notifications into [Matrix](https://matrix.org/) chat rooms (see Matrix-Chat). In addition it is possible to manage grouprise content (e.g. delete spam, manage groups) by talking to the Matrix Commander (a chat bot).
The deployment based on deb packages configures most of these components.
