openslides 1.3.1

Presentation and assembly system

Latest Version: 1.5.1

This is OpenSlides, version 1.3.1 (2013-01-09).

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 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

The start script of OpenSlides

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

will start OpenSlides using djangos development server. 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 Shows all options
-a, --address=ADDRESS
 Changes the address on which the server will listen for connections
-p PORT, --port=PORT
 Changes the port on which the server will listen for connections
--syncdb Creates/updates database before starting the server
--reset-admin Resets the password to 'admin' for user 'admin'
-s SETTINGS, --settings=SETTINGS
 Sets the path to the settings file.
--no-reload Does not reload the development server
--version Show version and exit.
Example 1: Openslides should only be accessible on this computer:
openslides -a
Example 2: Like above, but also specify the port as 8080
openslides -a -p 8080
