Projects / OpenGuides


OpenGuides is a wiki-like package for maintaining a collaborative city guide. It is written in Perl and runs as a CGI program, and uses either the MySQL, PostgreSQL, or SQLite database. It offers features over a "normal" wiki such as metadata management and a "find nearby things" function. The look and feel is highly customizable thanks to use of the Template Toolkit.
