e-cidadania is a project to develop an open source application for citizen participation, which can be used for debates, proposals, trusted voting, usable by associations, companies and administrations.

The e-cidadania objective is to provide a way to make a full participation process on internet, or even use it as a complement to in person participative processes.


Since e-cidadania 0.1.5 we include an automated buildout system. If you want to install it to do testing or development you should see these instructions

If you don't want to create an isolated development environment:

  • Download the source code from git, or from the official webpage.

  • You need to install the python packages specified in requirements.txt for e-cidadania, you can do it with pip:

    sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Configure src/e_cidadania/settings/production.py to you desire.

  • Set src/e_cidadania/settings/__init__.py DEBUG to False

  • Generate the database with:

    python manage.py syncdb
  • Make all the south migrations:

    pytohn manage.py migrate
  • Copy all the static files:

    python manage.py collectstatic
  • Run the development server

    python manage.py runserver

e-cidadania currently supports python 2.7.X. The work for porting to python 3 is on the "python3" branch.


There is a demo running in the website http://demo.ecidadania.org.
