the start of datapkggui project, a gui for ckan datapkg


Beginning with the next Monday I will start the most open project I’ve ever done. Yet another FBK collaboration begins for me. Under the supervision of Maurizio Napolitano, OKFN ambassador, datapkggui will be a graphical user interface built around the datapkg tool.

With the final aim to becoming OKFN official graphical tool for handling open datasets, datapkggui has two major objectives:

  1. Develop a usable graphical user interface for datapkggui

  2. Integrate the tool in the SOFA Statistics tool

With these two objectives in mind, datapkggui would help the Community twice: by facilitating the search, retrieval, use and creation of open datasets and by directly using them with the SOFA Statistics program.

I do not use a commenting system anymore, but I would be glad to read your feedback. Feel free to contact me.
