GetOpinionated

An online vote system supporting liquid democracy and document collaboration.

Dependencies:

You need a number of python modules installed on your system to be able to run getopinionated; these are:

  • Django 1.4
  • python-django-south
  • python-django-authopenid
  • python-oauth2
  • [optional] Scipy 0.12.0 or higher
    • (needed for the evaluation of the votes. An efficient inverse for sparse matrices was only added to scipy recently)
  • [optional] python-imaging
    • (needed to get avatars from the users social network account)

Furthermore, getopinionated has been developed on python 2.7.

Installing dependencies in Ubuntu

Assuming you have python 2.7, run the following for Django:

sudo apt-get install python-pip
sudo pip install django==1.4

And Install the required dependencies as follows:

sudo pip install south django-authopenid oauth2

And for scipy and python-imaging:

sudo apt-get install python-dev git
sudo pip install cython
sudo pip install git+http://github.com/numpy/numpy/
sudo apt-get install gfortran libopenblas-dev liblapack-dev
sudo pip install git+http://github.com/scipy/scipy/
sudo pip install PIL

Getting started

To run the development server, run

python manage.py localserver

This will create the database, populate it with the data in testdata.json and execute manage.py runserver.

Notes for setting up a production server

  • Make sure to add a local_settings.py file. For more info on this, take a look at a template file.

  • Install all optional dependencies as well

  • Set up cronjob to call the following at least every 5 minutes:

      python manage.py updatevoting
