Mzalendo

This web app allows you to store and share information on public figures, especially politicians.

Please see the Operations Manual which covers all aspects of running a Mzalendo site.

For an overview of the system please see the files in docs/ - especially OVERVIEW.txt

Community

Please join the Mzalendo Users Google group for discussion about running Mzalendo-based websites. This is also where announcements etc will be made.

https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!forum/mzalendo-users

There is also the Components mailing list for some of the code used to make the site. This includes MapIt (for the boundaries) and PopIt (a data storage engine that Mzalendo will be changed to use in the future):

Installing

Please see the docs/INSTALL.txt and docs/INSTALL-macos.txt files

Troubleshooting

Please see docs/TROUBLESHOOTING.txt file

Future

The Mzalendo codebase was originally written for the Kenyan site mzalendo.com. It has since been modified to support other sites - notably one in Nigeria.

We want the code to be easy to use for other installations, but currently there are some rough edges.

We also intend to replace the core app's models with an external data store. This will be done using PopIt which is a project that we are currently working on.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
