Improving Data Package Manager documentation


#1

As suggested here, it would be nice to include some improved instructions on how to use the data package manager (dpm).

As mentioned in that post, [quote=“gsilvapt, post:13, topic:919”]
The Data Package Manager and the other data package repositories need some improved instructions. I know you guys have eased the job by creating online tools to create the needed files. But then, there is this that I made with Ricardo Lafuente once:https://github.com/okfn-oe/datapackage-validator. Obviously, he took care of the coding parts, I improved the documentation about it. And, in the end, it seems fairly straightforward to create and validate datapackages by using a few codes in the terminal.

I am not a technical guy and the only thing I can do is to report my experience. Nevertheless, I am here to contribute and I believe this is an important part to help other non-power users to use the tools we are creating without suffering that much. Understanding those tools and have enough knowledge to be independent is kind of important - at least to me!

If any case, I don’t mind suggestions some edits to the website. I am not sure where the repository is though, so please enlighten me.

Best regards,
Gustavo.
