Voteflow

VoteFlow is a website/app built on django to try out a LiquidDemocracy-like system.
Currently in early stages - expect some uglyness and broken bits.

Previously known as "MeshDemocracy: Agora"

Live Demo: Click here - very pre-alpha!

###Topic Tree The topic tree is a central component - anyone can create a topic as a subtopic of any other topic - or top-level

###Posting Posting lets people place messages directly inside topics, or as a reply to an existing message

###Representation A user may pick a representitive for a topic - this also applies to sub-topics, and can chain.
So, Theo is representing 100 people in Science.
Theo and 9 other people also representing 100 people in science make Albert their representitive for Science->Physics.
Albert is now representing 1000 people in physics.

###Voting Any user may vote on any Posting/Message.

##Project Structure Project setup should be fairly standard for django. Important files are in agora/:

  • urls.py - based on browser URL, directs you to a view
  • views.py - Pulls data from models, returns through a template
  • models.py - Database models
  • templates/agora/* - HTML templates
  • static/agora/* - CSS and other files
