I work as a GIS Coordinator for a local government, so of course I’m interested in Esri’s local government web applications on GitHub. This repository contains two of the configurable web application templates found on ArcGIS Online, Finder and Find, Edit, and Filter. These applications have some configurable options out of the box but infinite possiblities by way of the open and free to use source code. I have developed applications based on other open source local government apps from Esri. They can be a great starting point for beginning developers to learn from.

“Why I starred” is a series of articles describing projects I star on GitHub and why I found them interesting. My hope is that you’ll find them interesting as well.
