Website for "Where does Cameroon's Money Go?"

This contains the web frontend to the Cameroon budget site, a front-end to the OpenSpending platform built in cooperation with the World Bank.

Initialize the repository

To run the site for local development, follow these steps:

  • Install Jekyll
  • Make sure you're on the branch gh-pages
  • Fetch the openspendingjs submodule with:
    • git submodule init
    • git submodule update

Generate the site

The site can be generated with this command from the repository root:

jekyll --server --auto 

This will run an HTTP server at port 4000 to serve the site.

The data on the site comes from 2 datasets: cm-budgets and cm-pib.
