Core functionality in Decidim. Every single decidim functionality depends on this gem.


You'll be using indirectly on any decidim application.


Add decidim to your Gemfile and you'll be using it:

gem 'decidim'

And then execute:



Core implements an Amendment feature that can be activated in the components. As of now, it's only implemented in the proposal component.

This feature makes it possible for anyone to edit the text of an amendable resource and create a child resource as an amendment. This child resource may receive support and the author of the amendable resource may accept or reject the amendment (or child proposal). In case of rejection, the author of the rejected emendation may raise the child resource to an independent resource.

Key artifacts for Amendments

  • Amendable module: A concern with the features needed when you want a model to be amendable.
  • Amendment class: The ApplicationRecord that includes the polymorphic associations to make the model amendable.

Models that want to be amendable must include Amendable and declare an amendable configuration for the model.

Global Search

Core implements a Search Engine that indexes models from all modules globally. This feature is implemented using PostgreSQL capability for full text search via pg_search gem.

This module also includes the following models to Decidim's Global Search:

  • Users

Key artifacts for Global Search

  • Searchable module: A concern with the features needed when you want a model to be searchable.
  • SearchableResource class: The ActiveRecord that finally includes PgSearch and maps the indexed documents into a model.

Models that want to be indexed must include Searchable and declare Searchable.searchable_fields.

Metrics docs

Core adds an implementation to show APP metrics within some pages. You can see specific documentation at Metrics
