Dataset description #98
Datasets have quite a central role in many hackathons as being part of a challenge. What we are looking for here is the ability to link to Data Packages and open data portals, loading and displaying the metadata directly from an event or projects. The dataset description should follow the event description, as requested by @Cotting - not the other way around. Also the link to the data resources in the navigation needs to be improved.
Challenges in the form of a Data Package could be featured as in [this example], while others can be listed as GitHub issues were visualized as project ideas in this Open Data Day event, or as Data Packages are being shown via Datacentral in the Food Open Data events. Integration with CKAN as done in the GLAM event is also of interest.
In other words, the current technical support needs to be improved along side with some design thinking about how to make this work well for the user.

Until we have a separate project, here is the code being used on https://hack.opendata.ch/event/16 to display datasets from Datacentral's API: https://gist.github.com/loleg/50b3ff0a7ce8d8a32cc1ace61c68e433
