In the spirit of “If your not ashamed of your first release you released to late” who wants to see my new project? https://www.datatig.com/
Do you store community data in a GitHub repository - maybe CSV, YML or MarkDown files? We’ll take that and automatically build a nice website for you!
For example … http://dataportals.org/ data is in a spreadsheet at https://github.com/okfn/dataportals.org/blob/master/data/portals.csv .
It can now also be browsed at https://www.datatig.com/gh/okfn/dataportals.org/b/master/
This reveals several things:
- Some of the language tags could be merged: https://www.datatig.com/gh/okfn/dataportals.org/b/master//d/portals/f/language en and English
- Some of the tags could be merged: https://www.datatig.com/gh/okfn/dataportals.org/b/master//d/portals/f/tags unitedkingdom, united-kingdom and britain
- Some of the websites linked don’t seem to be online any more: https://www.datatig.com/gh/okfn/dataportals.org/build/2
Hope that’s useful for people!
I’m now looking for other GitHub repositories with community data to test it on to make sure the results are as useful as they can be - let me know if you have anything like that.
(This builds on my previous work with community data sets - things like https://opentechcalendar.co.uk/ - so this is a topic I’m keen to discuss with people!)
