Why using Pytition?
- Because it allows you to host petitions without compromising the privacy of your signatories.
- No tracking, ever: CSS, JS and all resources are self-hosted. Pytition does not use CDN.
- Nice UI: Bootstrap 4 + JQuery 3.
- Based on solid backend technology: Django.
- Responsive UI: works well on phones/tablets/laptops/desktops.
- If you host an instance of Pytition, you can guarantee your signatories that their informations won't leak to third parties.
- It is Open Source and Free Software.
- Multi-lingual UI with i18n. For now only English and French translations available but you can send a Pull Request :)
- You can pre-visualize petitions before publishing them.
- Easy to use: petition content is typed-in via TinyMCE editors (like WordPress).
- You can setup real SMTP account for the confirmation e-mail so that it is less likely considered as SPAM.
- Supports Open Graph tags to provide description and image to allow nice cards to be shown when people post the petition link on social networks.
- You can propose your signatories to subscribe to a newsletter/mailinglist (via HTTP GET/POST or EMAIL methods).
- You can export signatures in CSV format.
- Support for several organizations on the same Pytition instance v2.0
- Fine grain per-user per-organization permissions
- Email retry support through the use of a mail queue middleware
- Nice (multiple) permlink support for each petition
- Support for multi-lingual petition content: v3.0
