The Follower extension for CKAN adds the ability for users to follow data packages.
Current Status: Beta
To install the plugin, enter your virtualenv and install the source:
$ pip install hg+http://bitbucket.org/johnglover/ckanext-follower
This will also register a plugin entry point, so you now should be able to add the following to your CKAN .ini file:
ckan.plugins = follower
After you clear your cache and reload the site, the Follower plugin and should be available. A follower count and a button to follow/unfollow packages should be available beside the RSS subscribe link on all package pages.
From the ckanext-follower directory, run:
$ nosetests --ckan
