ng features in current Popit implementation, and strives to implement a generic database, editing/viewing user interface and API or Popolo governance standards.
A lot of data inconsistency in current MongoDB implementation. Current consideration is to consider replacement with PostgreSQL.
Generic Editing and Viewing UI
This user interface is meant for users maintaining the database, to enter and edit information following Popolo standard classes and fields. It is not meant to represent the data in specific manner, other than as per the specification definitions. eg. It does not assume that an organization is a legislative assembly, a committee or company. It will simply present the data as per the Popolo specifications.
Goal is that a group planning to start adding information for open data governance database, as information is available to them in a flexible manner.
Financial and Relationship information following Popolo principles need to develop to be able to store financial information such as funds transfers and ownership between people and organizations.
Popit was meant for people to quickly start adding and building database. It therefore will need to host projects from around the world. who may not have resources to host or deploy their own Popit API and database instance.
