Note: This repository will eventually need to be renamed, as it currently holds a as-yet-unnamed joint project between ANCIR and the Institute for Security Studies. The project will serve as a prototype for connectedAFRICA infrastructure in the longer term.
This project maps out connections between politically exposed persons, business and other organisations in South Africa.
This package works in combination with a running instance of grano, a toolkit for journalistic influence mapping. Based on that API, this package provides ETL/loading scripts and a Flask-based frontend.
As a developer, set up a local virtual environment (using
virtualenv) and clone the
connectedafrica package from GitHub:
git clone https://github.com/codeforafrica/connectedAFRICA.git cd connectedAFRICA virtualenv pyenv source pyenv/bin/activate python setup.py develop
After that, you need to set up a configuration file, e.g.
settings.py to hold the configuration for the front-end.
