opinion_socket

Opinion Socket is a software package that is designed to help with gauging the opinion of a large number of people over the internet.

It was originally designed to make it possible to collect the opinion of students at IIT Mandi on various issues.

Usage

  1. Create a new poll, by running rake new_poll[Poll Title] and then editing the file created in the polls/ directory to add details.
  2. Send out emails to all students registered by their enrollment numbers in enrollments.yaml by running rake send_emails[Poll Title].
  3. Give people some time to fill out the form.
  4. Run rake generate_csv to generate a CSV file with the results of the poll. This file can be opened using any spreadsheet software package.
