ORServices is a free, open source, smartphone-friendly directory application for health, human and social services that uses Open Referral data formats. It’s designed to be an easy to deploy, modify and maintain alternative to expensive proprietary nonprofit service directories often used by 2-1-1 systems in the USA.

You can use ORServices as an interface to manage all aspects of your service directory data, or you can manage your data using the OR Airtable Template and display it automatically via ORServices. We can also set up a custom publishing workflow for you whereby your data is transformed from its existing format into an Open Referral’s Human Service Data Standard (HSDS) zip file and regularly imported into an ORServices application.

Features include:

  • Web and mobile-friendly, geo-aware directory software
  • Human Service Data Standard (HSDS) compliant data model
  • Manage any facet of HSDS data within the app
  • Create and manage users, and assign them the ability to manage contact, service, location and organization information on an organization by organization basis
  • Content management system for customizing home and about pages, headers and footers, site colors, icons, images and logos.
  • Location-aware search and filtering
  • Manage multiple service taxonomies
  • Download PDFs and CSVs of individual and filtered lists of services and organizations.
  • Track and manage user data entry sessions
  • Import data from Airtable, HSDS CSVs, HSDS Zip and HSDS Zip API
  • Export data as HSDS CSV, HSDS Zip and HSDS Zip API
  • Integration with Google Translate to offer contents in dozens of different languages.
  • Integrate with Google Analytics for tracking user flows, usage statistics and more

Installation

👉Server Requirements:

The Laravel framework has a few system requirements. You will need to make sure your server meets the following requirements:

  • PHP 7.4
  • BCMath PHP Extension
  • Ctype PHP Extension
  • JSON PHP Extension
  • Fileinfo PHP extension
  • Mbstring PHP Extension
  • OpenSSL PHP Extension
  • PDO PHP Extension
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension
  • XML PHP Extension

👉 Web Server Configuration:

Apache

Pretty URLs Laravel includes a public/.htaccess file that is used to provide URLs without the index.php front controller in the path. Before serving Laravel with Apache, be sure to enable the mod_rewrite module so the .htaccess file will be honored by the server.

If the .htaccess file that ships with Laravel does not work with your Apache installation, try this alternative:

Options +FollowSymLinks -Indexes
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} .
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

Nginx

If you are using Nginx, the following directive in your site configuration will direct all requests to the index.php front controller:

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;
}

👉Configuration

  • Run git clone https://github.com/sarapis/orservices.git
  • Create a MySQL database for the project
  • mysql -u root -p, if using Vagrant: mysql -u homestead -psecret
  • From the projects root run cp .env.example .env

👉Local Development Server

php artisan serve
