Short Description
ANYWAY - Car accidents map
Full Description

ANYWAY - Crowd-sourced road hazard reporting website.<br>
Also available at

Feel free to contribute to the project.

To report bugs and feature requests, please open an issue on GitHub.

See also our Android app on GitHub.

The datasets Anyway uses are documented here:

See Code Directory Tree Structure.


Anyway's main goal is raising awareness of road accidents and act to avoid them, by showing road accidents with casualties over map.<br>
The shown data based on reports supplied by the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) and real time reports from United Hatzalah of Israel.<br>
Anyway is an open source project, sponsored by The Public Knowledge Workshop (“Hasadna”).


  • We try to follow the process of other Hasadna projects, e.g. Open-Knesset.
  • Please take a moment to read our "Contributing to ANYWAY" manifest.
  • To see our GitHub issues in a nicer interface, take a look at HuBoard. Check out the Ready list to find a task to work on. The Backlog list there contains issues that are still not ready to be started. The Working list contains issues already started by developers (make sure to move your issue there once you start working on it), and the Done list contains completed issues that are waiting to be confirmed done and closed.

Getting the code

  1. Fork this repository on GitHub
  2. git clone*you*/anyway
  3. Add the main repository as your upstream remote: git remote add upstream
  • Get updates whenever you start working: git pull upstream dev
  • Push to your fork when you've committed your changes and tested them: git push, and make a pull request from your fork on GitHub

Local Developement: Installing dependencies

You should be familiar with setting up Python in your computer. You can consult the wiki for
platform specific tutorials. Developing by using a virtual
is highly recommended.

Choosing a Python Version

The project is currently transitioning to Python 3. Both Python 2 and 3 are supported at the moment, and the code is tested in Travis against both versions. If you are setting a new environment, it is recommended that you choose Python 3 for future compatibility. The instructions below are relevant for Python 2.


  1. sudo apt-get install python2-pip python2-dev libpq-dev rabbitmq-server


  1. sudo dnf upgrade python-setuptools


  1. sudo easy_install pip setuptools

For all platforms:

  1. Activate your virtualenv (in case of using one): source *env-name*/bin/activate
  2. Run pip install -r requirements.txt -r test_requirements.txt


See the Wiki.

Local Developement: Local first run (all platforms)

  1. Set up a PostgreSQL server and create a database for anyway. The instructions for doing that
    depend on your operating system
  2. Define connection string (needs to be defined whenever you start working):

  3. First time, create tables: alembic upgrade head

  4. Optionally, get the complete accidents file after sending a permission request, and extract it into /static/data/cbs. Otherwise, you'll use the example accidents files that you already got with the code.
  5. Populate the data (markers etc.): python process cbs: this will take a few minutes if
    you're using the example files (default), but if you have the complete data it may take several
  6. Populate United Hatzalah sample data: python process united --light for the complete,
    or more recent data please contact the Anyway team.
  7. Populate CBS registered vehicles in cities : python process registered_vehicles: this will take less than an hour
  8. Get the RSA file from rsa file and extract the file into /static/data/rsa. To Populate RSA data: python process rsa <rsa_file_name>
  9. Run the app: python testserver: do this whenever you start working and want to try out your code.
  10. Navigate to in your browser.
  11. If the site fails to load properly, make sure you have JDK installed on your machine
  12. If you wish to share your app on the local network, you can expose flask by running python testserver --open (Please note that this would expose your machine on port 5000 to all
    local nodes)

It is useful to add the following to your ~/.bashrc (fixing for the correct path):

alias anyway='cd *path*/anyway && workon anyway && export DATABASE_URL=postgresql://postgres@localhost/anyway'

Then you can simply start working by running the anyway command.


To run tests: pylint -j $(nproc) anyway tests && pytest -m "not browser" ./tests

If you also wish to run the real browser tests, replace-m "not browser" with --driver Chrome or specify the browser of your choice. To learn more, read about pytest-selenium.

Altering the database schema

When creating a patch that alters the database schema, you should use generate the appropriate
Alembic revision by running:

alembic revision --autogenerate -m "Description of the change"

Make sure to commit your revision together with the code.
