Frictionless Data websites


#1

What’s happening with the Frictionless Data websites?

http://data.okfn.org and http://frictionlessdata.io appear to be very similar except the first having links to data.

Hi @Stephen! There’s an open issue for moving all the static content on data.okfn.org to frictionlessdata.io https://github.com/okfn/data.okfn.org/issues/206 which I’m working on. What would you like to see in a frictionlessdata.io site?

For starters:

  • A simple guide to explain to non-IT people on how to:

  • automatically create/infer a json table schema based their tabular data.

  • how to refine the schema with extra constraints (ideally drawing from a library of common constraint patterns)

  • how to create the data package

  • How these files then can be published and visualised in their portal (starting with CKAN).

I’m starting down the path of addressing some of your suggestions. Can you take a look at (and try following) these guides? Feedback more than welcome :blush: . I’m sure things can be rearranged and made clearer.
