This is the Programming Contest Jury System "DOMjudge" version 8.0.0DEV

DOMjudge is a system for running a programming contest, like the ICPC regional and world championship programming contests.


For more information on installation and requirements see the documentation under the doc/manual directory. There is an HTML version of the documentation available, prebuilt from reStructuredText sources.

There's also team documentation available, prebuilt in PDF format from reStructuredText sources, but it contains default/example settings. To include the correct settings for your local environment, DOMjudge has to be properly configured first, as parts of the configuration are used in it (e.g. the URL to the team interface of DOMjudge). For more information, see the documentation.

All documentation is also available online at the DOMjudge homepage: Please note that this documentation is from the latest stable release and thus might not apply to your version.

A fresh copy of the repository source tree must first be bootstrapped, generating the configure script and documentation. This can be done by running 'make dist', see the online documentation, section "Developer information" for more details.

There is a wiki which collects other pieces of information about specific configurations or integrations:
