An open-source hyperlocal news platform built on Django.
OpenBlock began life as the open-source code released by Everyblock.com in June 2009. Originally created by Adrian Holovaty and the Everyblock team, it is now developed as an open-source (GPL) project at http://openblockproject.org.
OpenBlock is currently developed by OpenPlans, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Funding for both the initial creation of Everyblock and the ongoing development of OpenBlock was provided by the Knight Foundation.
