An Introduction to the OpenStad Ecosystem
The OpenStad software allows for different e-democracy websites to be created & managed. It supports: single & multiple voting on ideas, submitting ideas, participatory budgeting, arguments, voting and arguments, different authentication methods, managing multiple sites and more.
Initially the software was developed in Amsterdam. It's currently actively used in many different cities, such as Amsterdam, Den Haag, Haarlem & Alphen aan den Rijn.
The ecosystem contains a CMS & sitebuilder that allows for pages to be build from scratch, an API and an admin panel that allows for multiple sites be created, copied and managed.
Check out the Technical Documentation for the different servers we are managing and how to install the servers.
For web editors: find out the CMS basics under Werken in het CMS - Algemeen (in Dutch), and read about creating and filling pages under Pagina's opbouwen (in Dutch).
