LIBRE: Libre Information Batch Restructuring Engine

Created by the Office of the Chief Information Officer of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in 2013 as a prototype to show off the potential of opening data.

Resources of the Office of the CIO, once commited to this project, are no longer available. We invite the community to continue its development.

Turn this:

Into this!

Query your data afterwards too!



OS dependencies

LIBRE supports Spatial queries as such is dependant on several libraries that are installed at the OS level.

If using Ubuntu Linux install the required libraries with:

$ sudo apt-get install libgdal-dev -y

On OSX using MacPorts:

$ sudo port install geos
$ sudo port install gdal

Proceed to install the actual files of LIBRE:

Using pip

Via pip Python packager installer

$ pip install libre
$ syncdb --migrate
$ cat <<'EOF' >
$ runserver --pythonpath=.

From GitHub

By cloning the code from the GitHub repository:

$ git clone
$ cd libre
$ virtualenv venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r libre/requirements.txt
$ ./ syncdb --migrate
$ cat <<'EOF' >
$ ./ runserver

Docker container

Or by using Yamir Encarnacion's Docker container:

Use this to build a new image, tagged for easier reuse

$ sudo docker build -t yencarnacion/libre-docker

Running the container

$ sudo docker run -d -p 8000:8000 yencarnacion/libre-docker

The default username and password for the Docker image are: Username: admin | Password: libre

Once up and running go to <your ip>:8000 in your browser to use LIBRE.
