Mootiro Form

MootiroForm is a web application for web form creation, collection of entries and report generation.

Mootiro is an effort by IT3S to build web tools for non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

The license is BSD. See the file LICENSE.txt

Technical Instructions

MootiroForm is a web app built on top of Python, Pyramid, SQLAlchemy, Genshi, JQuery and other libraries.

Installation follows pretty much the same instructions as any Pyramid web app.

Specific settings are covered in the INSTALL.md file.

Installation instructions


Operating System

MootiroForm should run fine on Linux (recommended), Unix and Mac OS.

All development has been done under Linux, but deploying on Windows should work if the required libraries are available.


Python 2.7 or higher is required. Python 3 is not supported yet.

We recommend using virtualenv for installing the necessary libraries. On Ubuntu Natty, you can install them with sudo apt-get install python-setuptools


  • PostgreSQL 8 or 9 (recommended)
    • Make sure to install the psycopg2 library. On Ubuntu Natty, you can install it with sudo apt-get install python-psycopg2
  • SQLite 3

HTTP Server

We recommend using Apache with mod_wsgi, but theoretically, any server supporting WSGI interface should do fine.

Apache can be installed on Ubuntu Natty with sudo apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-wsgi
