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.

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)
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

-h, --help Show this help message and exit.
-a, --address=ADDRESS
 IP Address to listen on. Default:
-p PORT, --port=PORT
 Port to listen on. Default: 8000 (start as admin/root: 80)
--syncdb Update/create database before starting the server.
 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.
