Export from desktop import to server

I’m very interested in trying out Manager.io. I think the paid server edition is the way for us to go. I plan to host it on Digital Ocean. But until then I want to get started on OSX, desktop edition.

How easy is it to export everything and then import it into the server edition?

Do I just use the backup feature?

Yes.

Is this an open source project?

I’m a software developer with a good deal of experience with SugarCRM community edition. But SugarCRM doesn’t really do accounting.

I’d like to be able to integrate

Manager is not open source even though it is made of quite a few open-source libraries.

Manager API is one way to integrate with Manager but API is very immature at this point.
