Code

A community-driven catalog of Open Data Portals around the world.

Data

This repository contains the data as well as the code for the DataPortals.org website.

History

The original plans for DataCatalogs.org - Feb 2013. Other ideas may be listed as Issues in this repository.

Community

You can discuss with the community any ideas on how to improve the project or otherwise share your thoughts. Conversations with the Open Knowledge community are held in the discussion forum.

Contributing to the catalogue

You can contribute additions or corrections to the data portal list by opening a new issue in the repository. Please check the list of outstanding issues first to see if your suggestion or change is already listed there to avoid duplicates.

If you can, submitting a pull request to changet the data.csv file would be even better. See the datapackage.json file to find out the structure of the csv and the meaning of each column.

Developing the website

This app requires NodeJS (>= v9.11).

  1. Clone this repo:

    git clone --recursive git@github.com:okfn/dataportals.org.git

    You need to use --recursive because this repository uses Recline as a git submodule.

  2. Install the dependencies:

        npm install .
  3. Try it out locally:

        node app.js

    Then point your browser at http://localhost:5000/

Deployment

We deploy by default to Heroku. The app is currently configured to deploy on each push to master.
