CityGroups is a searchable public directory which allows community organizers and residents to find community groups so that they can work together. Like a wiki, city staffers and community members can contribute and retrieve the data in the system. The goal is to promote and assist smaller, less-visible groups who do important work but require modern tools to publicize it. CityGroups will help them work together and work better. ### Installation CityGroups is built with Drupal. CityGroups is an install profile. "Data-Wiki" is the backend & is a collaborative data collection platform. ### Requirements LAMP stack (or MAMP, XAMP etc.) MYSQL database 1. Create your database in MYSQL. 2. Download DataWiki codebase. https://github.com/codeforamerica/CityGroups (You can either download and unzip it, or clone it from github if you have git installed on your server.) 3. The DataWiki codebase goes in your web server. 4. Visit the path of your server. You should be able to install it. Depending how you do your settings.php, you may need to visit yoursite/install.php You install this like you would any normal Drupal site, except that you will select "CityGroups" as the Install Profile on the install page. 5. Follow the prompts. ### Development The project is under active development this summer and yes, if you would like this in your city, drop us a line. ### Github Instructions are hosted here: * https://github.com/codeforamerica/CityGroups Codebase is hosted here: * https://github.com/codeforamerica/Data-Wiki Contact chacha @ codeforamerica dot org.
