It's written in JavaScript, and it works in practically all modern browsers, including those on mobile phones. It can use HTML5 caching to make itself available even without a live net connection, and it remembers your item selections across sessions. The hosting requirements for KonOpas are minimal, as all the processing is done by the browser; all the files are served statically. Some back-end scripting may be required if you require live updates of the programme during the event. Built and tested for a growing number of large and small conventions and conferences, KonOpas is about as easy to use as possible. With automatic filter rule generation from your data, KonOpas can be set up for your event by just adding your name and logo to an HTML file, along with pointers to your programme and participant data. The open-source KonOpas client can also talk with a dedicated KonOpas server. The server enables item sync across different browsers, devices and calendar apps; item-specific voting and commenting; and allows the event organisers to track which items were the most popular. To enable server access for your event, please get in touch with us at: info@konopas.org For links to example instances of KonOpas, take a look at the links from our [website][KonOpas].

So far we've got built-in integration with at least [Conference Planner]/[Grenadine] and [Zambia], with more to come. For smaller events, a simple [PHP script] is available for fetching data from a publicly readable Google Drive Spreadsheet and converting it to the [KonOpas format][KO-fmt].

Alternatively, if you clone the [repository][KO-repo], you'll have a much easier time of making changes to the skin or hacking the Javascript source, but you'll need to compile the code yourself---instructions for that are in the following section.
