Welcome to FixMyStreet Platform

mySociety's open source geographic problem-reporting platform

Install

Begin with the installation documentation. Put FixMyStreet on your own Debian/Ubuntu server, or on Amazon EC2 (or, if that's a problem for you, talk to us about hosting).

Customise

FixMyStreet is fully customisable — change the style, layout, maps, and behaviour of your installation. It's international too: if FixMyStreet is not already available in your language, you don't need any hard-core coding skills to provide a new translation.

Run

Our information for administrators covers everything you need to do once your FixMyStreet site is up and running. Help is available on everything from defining admin boundaries to writing common user support emails.

Join in or get help

There's a friendly community comprising full-time mySociety staff, international volunteers, and people like you who are already running their own FixMyStreet sites in their own countries. They're happy to offer technical and non-technical support — jump in and join!

About the FixMyStreet Platform

The FixMyStreet Platform is an open source project from mySociety to help people run websites for reporting common street problems such as potholes and broken street lights to an appropriate authority. It’s been running successfully in the UK since 2007 (in fact, it works so well some UK councils use it too), and we’re still working on making it better.

FixMyStreet has been copied around the world, and is still under active development. We work hard to make sure it’s easy to deploy, customise, and run in locations all over the world.

Could your location use a FixMyStreet site?

We’ve written a clear guide for anyone who’s thinking about setting up and running FixMyStreet. Anyone thinking of running such a project must read it first – it explains why these sites work, and what you need to think about before you start.

If you’re thinking of getting involved, we welcome questions about how it works on our mailing list. Or, if you’re outside the UK, email international@mysociety.org.

There’s also the FixMyStreet blog where we post version release information and other progress reports. And we often post FixMyStreet news on the mySociety blog too.
