This extension replaces the standard resources list on the dataset page with an interactive paginated list that can be browsed and filtered, useful for datasets with many resources.


Important things to keep in mind:

  • This extension overrides CKAN core templateis. If you need to add customizations to the resources list for your own project, you need to override this extension's templates from your own (and load your plugin first in the ini file, eg ckan.plugins = ... your_plugin resourcesfilter). The templates to override are the following:

    • package/snippets/resources_list.html -> same name and location
    • package/snippets/resource_item.html -> package/snippets/resources_list_template.html The second one is a Mustache template, rendered on the client. So any server side logic (eg check if user can edit, build URLs, etc) must be done on the Jinja2 resources_list.html template and passed via module parameters.
  • The browsable list is only rendered on the dataset read page, not the internal management one.

  • The current implementation does not support translations or the "popular" indicators. Pull requests are welcome.


To install ckanext-resourcesfilter:

  1. Activate your CKAN virtual environment, for example::

    . /usr/lib/ckan/default/bin/activate

  2. Install the ckanext-resourcesfilter Python package into your virtual environment::

    pip install ckanext-resourcesfilter

  3. Add resourcesfilter to the ckan.plugins setting in your CKAN config file (by default the config file is located at /etc/ckan/default/production.ini).

  4. Restart CKAN.


The page size controls the minimum number of resources in a dataset needed to display the updated interface. The default is 10.

ckanext.resourcesfilter.page_size = page_size
