dudle  

Dudle is an online scheduling application, which is free and OpenSource. One is able to schedule events (e.g. schedule a TelCo, meeting etc.) or ask for some alternative things (e.g. find out which sort of coffee some people like the most).

Unlike most other similar applications, Dudle offers enhanced access control settings, which minimizes trust assumptions into the polling server.

This Web 2.0 application offers functionality to make small polls. These polls either may have the target to schedule some event (e.g. schedule a TelCo, meeting etc.) or asks for some alternative things (e.g. find out which sort of coffee some people like the most).

Unlike most other similar applications, Dudle offers enhanced access control settings, which minimizes trust assumptions into the polling server. Users can configure their poll, depending on whom they trust. Trust scenarios, which are covered by the prototype are:

  1. trust in all participants of the group,
  2. trust in the poll initiator only,
  3. minimal trust in all parties.

How to Use

The application can be used in two ways, either one wants to use the application or one wants to set-up his own dudle server.

1. Use the Application

To use dudle one just has to go to the homepage, create a new poll and send the link to his friends. There are no requirements, a user has to fulfill except, that one has an internet browser.

2. Set-Up dudle on your own server

To set-up your own polling server, one can branch the source code using bazaar with the following command:

  • bzr branch https://dudle.inf.tu-dresden.de/ dudle

Preconditions are described separately in a README file within the directory (mainly a running web server which can execute ruby scripts over cgi is needed).

Target Audience

  • Normal internet users
  • Provider of poll-server
