This is the web frontend to the FRB Catalogue. This catalogue contains up to date information for the published population of Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs). The catalog connects to a postgres database, which is defined in the frbcatdb python package. For detailed information on the database format, see the frbcatdb package, or directly the create table script.
frbcat-web has two configuration files.
This file contains the postgres connection string. Modify it to connect to your postgres installation and table. The connectionstring has the following format: 'postgres://someuser:somepassword@somehost:someport/somedatabase'
In addition, the file contains a link to the CSV location at Zenodo, e.g. https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.xxxxxxxx
