Presentation and assembly system

Project description

====================================
English README file for OpenSlides
====================================

This is OpenSlides, version 1.4 (2013-07-10).


What is OpenSlides?
===================

OpenSlides is a free web-based presentation and assembly system for
displaying and controlling of agenda, motions and elections of an assembly.

See http://openslides.org for more information.


Getting started
===============

Install and start OpenSlides as described in the `INSTALL.txt <http://files.openslides.org/INSTALL-1.4.txt>`_.

If you need help please contact the OpenSlides team on public mailing list
or read the OpenSlides manual. See http://openslides.org.


The start script of OpenSlides
==============================

Start OpenSlides
----------------

Simply running
openslides.exe (on Windows)
or
openslides (on Linux/MacOS)

will start OpenSlides using the integrated Tornado webserver. It will also
try to open OpenSlides in your default webbrowser.

The server will listen on the IP address of your current hostname on port
80. If port 80 is not available, port 8000 will be used. This means that
the server will be available to everyone on your local network (at least
for commonly used network configurations).

See `Command line options` below if you need to change this.

The login for the default admin user after (created on first start),
is as follows:

Username: admin

Password: admin


Command line options
--------------------

The following command line options are available:

-h, --help
Show this help message and exit.

-a, --address=ADDRESS
IP Address to listen on. Default: 0.0.0.0

-p PORT, --port=PORT
Port to listen on. Default: 8000 (start as admin/root: 80)

--syncdb
Update/create database before starting the server.

--backupdb=BACKUP_PATH
Make a backup copy of the database to BACKUP_PATH.

--reset-admin
Make sure the user 'admin' exists and uses 'admin' as
password.

-s SETTINGS, --settings=SETTINGS
Set the path to the settings file.

--no-browser
Do not automatically start web browser.

--no-reload
Do not reload the web server.

--no-run
Do not start the web server.

--version
Show version and exit.

Example 1: Openslides should only be accessible on this computer:
