OpenGuides™ – the guides made by you — is a complete system for running a wiki website about a subject where geographical location is important. It is mostly used to run guides about a city or town. OpenGuides is an open source wiki-based free software web application written in Perl.


Our StructuredData is implemented via user-friendly individual text boxes, rather than MediaWiki-style templates; see for example Sandbox edit [dead link] on the Boston OpenGuide.

We chose to use SQL storage because it's flexible, and it allows guide admins to create customised queries and features; see for example the category search on the Randomness Guide to London. We included SQLite support for situations where running a proper database server isn't possible; SQLite is a complete SQL engine which stores all its data in a single file on disk. It does not use CamelCase.
