Platforms, software, and research in online governance.
To add a new project, fill out the Airtable form.
- All records
- Linked to: Cases: projects involved in an online governance case
- Linked to: Cryptogov Survey: projects that have completed the Cryptogov survey
- Linked to: Entity-Decision Model: projects with a defined Entity-Decision Model
- By development status: grouped by whether the project is a work in progress, active, inactive, or dead
- Open-source software: projects labeled open-core or open-source
- DAO ecosystem projects: projects that create or facilitate Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs)
- Policy Templates: plain-text or code documents that describe a governance policy
- Metagov projects: projects owned by Metagov
- Metagov Gateway support: projects for which Metagov Gateway has implemented a plugin
Fields of interest
- Year founded: Year that the project was first released, or if that not lear, year of first code commit.
- Status: A project is inactive if it has been at least 2 years since the last commit. It’s dead if the code and/or service is no longer accessible.
- Online/offline: is the project specifically intended for online communities or offline communities? If not clear, say “not specific”. If it is not intended for either (e.g. Linux), say “Not community-related”. Intended to distinguish online governance tools like SourceCred from primarily offline tools like Consul (this later category of tools often gets classified under the heading of “civic tech”, e.g. https://civictech.guide/).
- Implements structures: a This is meant as, “this project implements or helps implement a community or organization with these observed structures.” Alternately: “after using this project, an organization will likely demonstrate these observed structures.” E..g Aragon implements DAOs, CIVS implements voting, and so on.
- product: libraries, tools, applications, and even services
- platform: hosted applications that communities interact on
- standard: includes protocols and text standards. Communities can interact via protocols, but protocols aren’t hosted like platforms are.
- mashup: mashup of several platforms or products.
- research: includes data sets (like Govbase!) and algorithms. It does NOT include papers.
- Project ownership type:
- Public domain: the project’s code or content is not held under copyright
- Open-source: the project’s code or content is available for use under an open-source or open-content license
- Open-core: a significant part of the project’s code or content is available for use under an open-source or open-content license
- Privately-owned: the project’s code or content is privately-owned
- Used by project: a staging column for more precise ways in which two projects interact, i.e. Requires project (hard dependency), Suggests project (soft dependency), Forked from project, and Built interop with project
