Part-DB is an Open-Source (AGPL 3.0) inventory managment system with a focus on electronic components (but can be used for other things too). It is installed on a web server and so can be accessed with any browser without the need to install additional software. GitHub Repo:

If you want to try out Part-DB you can find a demo instance under

See the GitHub Repo for more info.

Features include:

  • Inventory management of your electronic parts. Each part can be assigned to a category, footprint, manufacturer and multiple store locations and price information. Parts can be grouped using tags. You can associate various files like datasheets or pictures with the parts.
  • Multi-Language support (currently German, English, Russian, Japanese and French (experimental))
  • Barcodes/Labels generator for parts and storage locations, scan barcodes via webcam using the builtin barcode scanner
  • User system with groups and detailed (fine granular) permissions. Two-factor authentication is supported (Google Authenticator and Webauthn/U2F keys) and can be enforced for groups. Password reset via email can be setuped.
  • Optional support for single sign-on (SSO) via SAML (using an intermediate service like Keycloak you can connect Part-DB to an existing LDAP or Active Directory server)
  • Import/Export system (partial working)
  • Project management: Create projects and assign parts to the bill of material (BOM), to show how often you could build this project and directly withdraw all components needed from DB
  • Event log: Track what changes happens to your inventory, track which user does what. Revert your parts to older versions.
  • Responsive design: You can use Part-DB on your PC, your tablet and your smartphone using the same interface.
  • MySQL and SQLite supported as database backends
  • Support for rich text descriptions and comments in parts
  • Support for multiple currencies and automatic update of exchange rates supported
  • Powerful search and filter function, including parametric search (search for parts according to some specifications)
  • Automatic thumbnail generation for pictures

With these features Part-DB is useful to hobbyists, who want to keep track of their private electronic parts inventory, or makerspaces, where many users have should have (controlled) access to the shared inventory.

Part-DB is also used by small companies and universities for managing their inventory.

I want you to know that I'm still following this!

Plan on setting up an instance fairly soon and giving it a shot. I don't like any of the other options I've found for component management
