Google Refine Uploader Extension
This allows you to export datasets from Google Refine and post them as JSON to web servers! Intended for use with CouchDB
Work in progress!! more docs soon
Run Google Refine. On the starting page click the “Browse workspace directory” link in the lower left corner. Make a folder called “extensions” within the the window that pops up. Copy the refine-uploader folder into the extensions folder. The final path should be:
Restart Google Refine.
Hacking on the codez
- Check out the Google refine source code
- Go into the Refine base directory and run
- Clone this repo into as the
extensions/uploaderdirectory inside Google refine
- In another Terminal window go into the
extensions/uploaderdirectory and run
Every time you change a file in
extensions/uploader and run
ant from that folder it will build the new extension and reload it in the running instance of Refine
Thanks, Chicago Tribune!
This extension was based on the Chicago Tribune’s Stats Extension for Google Refine.
