The start script of OpenSlides
Simply running
openslides.exe (on Windows)

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

-h, --help
Shows all options

-a, --address=ADDRESS
Changes the address on which the server will listen for connections

-p PORT, --port=PORT

Creates/updates database before starting the server

Resets the password to 'admin' for user 'admin'

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

Does not reload the development server

Show version and exit.
