Installation

To install ckanext-officedocs:

  1. Clone this repository into the place where you normally install extensions, by default this will be /usr/lib/ckan/default/src/

  2. Activate your CKAN virtual environment, for example:

    . /usr/lib/ckan/default/bin/activate
    
  3. Install the ckanext-officedocs Python package into your virtual environment:

    cd ckanext-officedocs
    python setup.py install
    
  4. Add officedocs_view to the ckan.plugins setting in your CKAN config file (by default the config file is located at /etc/ckan/default/production.ini).

  5. If you wish for views to be created automatically for you, then you should add officedocs_view to the end of the ckan.views.default_views option in your config file.

    ckan.views.default_views = ... officedocs_view

  6. Restart CKAN. For example if you've deployed CKAN with Apache on Ubuntu:

    sudo service apache2 reload
    

    or if you're using supervisor:

    sudo supervisorctl restart ckan-uwsgi:\*
    

FAQ

Q: It doesn't work, my documents aren't previewing

A: For this extension to work, the documents to be previewed must be accessible to the wider internet (i.e. the Dataset Package is PUBLIC, not PRIVATE), and will only work if you use a hostname, and not just an IP address.
