#1531 enhancement kindly kindly ckan-sprint-2012-01-09 closed fixed Update group create/update so you can add capacities and group types.

The new members table needs a way so you can add arbitrary domain objects against them.

We need to extend the group schema to accept types, and instead of just being able to add packages to groups add members with their capacities that associated with different table rows.

#1595 defect kindly rgrp ckan-v1.7 closed wontfix Editing of a Group leads to recording a change against all associated datasets

Or at least it appears that way from revision log which displays all Group datasets against the changelog, see http://thedatahub.org/revision/4cdeeb42-3281-4f53-a29d-c694e1fd9217 -- not apparent from that page but see my user page: http://thedatahub.org/user/rufuspollock

This may turn out to be a UX bug rather than a real bug ...

Assigning to kindly for review and comment.

#1605 enhancement kindly rgrp ckan-v1.7 closed fixed [super] Multilingual support in CKAN


  • dataset and resource metadata (and other objects such as groups?)
  • Field values in taxonomy (e.g. country names - Eurovoc)
    • #1665 Research into Eurovoc
    • Display Taxonomy in different languages
  • Field values not in taxonomy (e.g. title & description)
    • Use extra fields e.g. _i18n_title_fr = Le data.
    • (If lots of fields would need translating then would consider having a new package for each language, linked together with PackageRelationships?. But I think it is just title and description (resource description etc. are so minor, not worth translating?), so using extra field better.)
  • EC extension (templates, form)
    • Currently the pot file is just for CKAN core. New pot file for CKAN core and this extension? Or separate ones for extensions?

#1689 enhancement kindly dread assigned List deleted datasets in API

The admin extension allows deleted datasets to be viewed, but there is no equivalent in the API. The package_list API call filters to just 'state=active' datasets.

'state' could be a parameter on the package_list call

  • Easy to call and implement
  • But getting permissions right for the different state values may not be easy - maybe a separate logic function is better?

#2422 defect kindly ross closed invalid Paster rights command appears broken

Reported in IRC by @floapps

In previous ckan versions i could use paster commands to remove reader rights from visitors on all packages and this would then throw the user to login screen when trying to see a dataset but, when i did this in ckan 1.7, i could still see all datasets as a visitor

Using http://docs.ckan.org/en/latest/authorization.html#permissions-publisher-mode

paster rights remove visitor reader package:all

Also has an empty list of roles in config for default visitor roles

I tested on my local install and could replicate with that command doing nothing. Neither affects existing or newly created datasets.

#2548 enhancement kindly ross datahub-july assigned Object ownership for groups/package


We need to be able to easily determine who the owner of a dataset or group is. Datasets and Groups should have an Owner, who may change over time but is a specific user within the CKAN instance. It should be easy for CKAN components to determine the user and for the initial version we should ignore the can of worms labelled 'ownership transfer'.

At this point migration is likely to be the biggest issue, and would suggest that it is acceptable that the last user to edit a dataset be set as the current owner.

More tickets should arise as a result of this work where we may be able to optimise some queries to use the new feature.

#2571 enhancement kindly toby demo phase 1 closed fixed implement logic.action.create.resource_create()

This function is incomplete

If you want I can do this but I need guidance over how to do this properly. ie would I go through lib.dictization.model_save.package_resource_list_save() which looks wrong to me as I'd need the package. resource_dict_save() seems better but to be honest the total lack of docstrings etc makes me feel ill.

can we just grab json blobs from solr?

also is it possible to specify a sort order/paging?

#2877 enhancement kindly rgrp assigned Bugs with datastore v2

In progress

  1. [major] q does not seem to work reliably. e.g. using the setup from this gist https://gist.github.com/1930806 and doing a ?q=DE yields no results (does not work with "q=de" either)
    • q=second does work ...
  2. [major] q does not work with 2 values (see below)
  3. Query on search with limit 0 results in total of 0 (should either be null or correct total). Queries with other limits yield correct total AFAICT
    • Also weird fact that limit is returned but as as as string - should it not be an integer
  4. Types on fields: could these not be canonical and as per recline (or is it important to allow exact sql types ...)

Multiple query values

Try a query such as: "second UK" and you will get 500 error:


ProgrammingError: (ProgrammingError) syntax error in tsquery: "second UK" 'select "_id", "id", "date", "x", "y", "z", "country", "title", "lat", "lon", count(*) over() as "_full_count"\n from "4f1299ab-a100-4e5f-ba81-e6d234a2f3bd" where _full_text @@ to_tsquery(%s) limit 100 offset 0' (u'second UK',)


Filter support: should think in more detail about this (may want to follow recline style)

#1171 enhancement mark.wainwright dread ckan 2.0 assigned Citation instructions on dataset and resource view pages

Some sort of citation helper. Something small on the dataset and resource page that would show how to cite.

wwaites: Some related thoughts on this from opb: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/opb/papers/ssdbm2006.pdf

timclicks: I'm looking at Dataverse for the first time[0]. It seems very popular in the social sciences. I noticed that there is a recommended citation for each dataset. For example, [1] is has this one: "Targeted Input Programme (TIP) 2000-01", http://hdl.handle.net/1902.1/SSC-MWI-TIP2000-01-M1 V1 [Version]"


Add a small box at bottom of dataset / resource page (or in sidebar on dataset page) with title "Cite this" with contents like:

%title. %author. Retrieved %date. %site_title.

For resource: %title = %dataset_title. %resource_name.

Could also add export to ref managers (e.g. to bibtex) but that is for later.

#2773 enhancement markw markw ckan-v1.9 new About page needs improving

The about page for the DataHub? (thedatahub.org/about) could be improved. More importantly the default about page for a generic CKAN instance should be completely different - focus more on Open Data rather than the community hub idea (as this is more relevant for most installations) and remove specific references to tdh.

#918 defect memespring dread closed invalid Package preview doesn't show tags or groups
  1. Edit any package
  2. Hit 'preview'

Notice that the preview at the bottom doesn't show what tags or groups the package is in.

This is because the new design of the package view only has this info in the sidebar, which is not displayed in the preview.

One might argue that this is ok because the tag is not a central part of the metadata, only used for searching, so it is ok not to preview it. But I wanted to check that this change was a conscious decision.

#90 enhancement nickstenning rgrp v0.11 closed fixed Link to RDF versions of CKAN data

We should link to representations on semantic.ckan.net

  • Each package page could link to its RDF representation
    • "Alternative formats" near star rating. Has logo for RDF (link to RDF) and JSON (link via CKAN REST i/f).
    • Some instances of ckan won't need this, so have option in ini file for this. rdf_store_url=xyz
    • Include machine-readable link to the RDF:
      <meta http-equiv=... />
    • 303 redirect to RDF when content negotiation requires RDF. Test:
      curl -I -H "Accept: application/rdf+xml" http://localhost:5000/package/warandpeace

Investigate and list (on the wiki at wiki:UiReviewNotes) CKAN's UI issues, in particular:

  • Overview pages: reduction in visual noise and unnecessary elements.
    • best example: package overview page
    • consider openness/downloadability icons
    • display common metadata fields in a more structured fashion?

Est cost: 2 hrs.

#214 enhancement nickstenning dread v0.11 closed fixed UI Review - General template
  • Set hover names on navigation links.
  • Do we really need to display "About CKAN" everywhere? Just on home page.
  • Redirect in routing /groups and /tags rather than /group and /tag. At the very least make the plural versions forward to the singular versions.

  • allow clicking on 'only openly licensed'/'only downloadable' to select/deselect checkboxes: make them <label>s.
  • cut 'only's -- use word 'filter' instead
  • doesn't appear to match substrings!? A search for 'anna' doesn't return match the 'annakarenina' package.

Package search results page package/search

  • need clearer delineation between search entry form and results.
  • 0 results needs to be clearer, and the alternative suggestion: 'would you like to create a new package' needs to not look like a search result.
  • "N tags found" -- why do I care? this should be presented as "filter results by tag" -- very unlikely that I'm looking for a tag: I'm looking for a package, but tags might help me narrow down my search.
  • tags should be displayed more like the way they're displayed when you add them to a package (i.e. blue 'tag' background)
  • filter out particular tags
  • tag cloud?
  • copywriting: "Packages - Search" -> "Search packages"

#218 enhancement nickstenning dread v0.11 closed fixed UI Review - Package listing
  • openness/downloadability ticks/crosses are totally inscrutable to non-techies (those who don't know about the title attribute). need better icons, and a key in a box on RHS.
  • maybe highlight two-tick entries with a particular colour, but the open knowledge badge is horrendous, and breaks visual cadence.
  • results data should be tabulated, with the project names and descriptions made most prominent. <li> blobs are unnecessary visual noise.
  • maybe links should go on the full titles? Get rid of package names.
  • Should have filter by name (à la KForge alphanum widget) and also by tag: list of most common tags in box on RHS?
  • same comments as search listing (ticket:217)

Package page package/mypackagename

  • Design
    • In general: a huge amount of visual and typographic noise: "Package:" is redundant.
    • "{edit}", "{history}" -- ugly, and it's not clear that these are primary actions on this page. Notably, why on earth is "make an enquiry with Is It Open?" bigger than these?
    • Openness/downloadability icons: need help, as discussed earlier
    • "Rating:" redundant, as is the second set of stars -- why can't both the display and rate widget
      • Rating - alternative to GET on set_rating.
    • "Metadata:" technospeak, probably redundant.
    • <li> bullets add nothing.
    • Title, Version, URL can probably go in one line.
    • Resources can be made more prominent.
    • Author, author email and Maintainer, maintainer email can be merged.
    • Groups, tags in little boxes?
    • Notes made more delineated -- Markdown has the capacity to look like other parts of the page: perhaps monospace the typeface?
    • Don't show extras unless there are any.

Package history page package/history/mypackagename

  • "Compare" button is in a ridiculous place. It should be above/below (both) the table, but not *in* it!
  • Ditto to overall "Recent Changes" page comments w.r.t. timestamps, GUIDs (ellipsis), and (if poss) author links.

  • Both search for tags *and* browse the list of tags right here

#226 enhancement nickstenning dread v1.1 closed fixed UI Review - History

Repository History revision

  • What is this page called? "Recent Changes", "Repository History", "/revision": standardise. Between the link in the nav and the page <title> particularly, but the route is also important. Perhaps /changes or something similar?
    • Will change page title on /revision/ to Revision History. Will not change route for the time being.
  • needs copyediting.
  • Pagination has similar issues to elsewhere. Also, most obvious here, is the fact that we don't need to display a link to every possible page. Please can we limit it to, say, a dozen nearby pages and an ellipsis.
  • Without looking at dates, its not clear whether I'm seeing most recent or oldest changes. Change pagination to say "Older"/"More recent" rather than "Previous"/"Next". (wontfix: now have text saying we are showing most recent changes)
  • Table layout is pretty ugly (yes, I'm aware this is my fault).
    • wontfix - nothing better at the moment
  • Timestamps are horribly unreadable. At the absolute minimum get rid of the micros. Hover for more detail?
  • Can we link to an author page? Yes!
  • Atom feed should have a feed icon~~
  • Why are we adding another <link rel="alternate"> to this page? We already have one for recent changes on every page in the site and the one we're adding has a less descriptive title. Which is correct? Use that one as a feed for every page.
1260880515000000 1279130390000000
#227 enhancement nickstenning dread v1.1 closed fixed UI Review - General checks
  • There is huge inconsistency in the titles of pages across the site: to give one example "Edit Package:" vs "Package: mypkg [not linked]" vs "History - mypkg [linked to package page]"
    • Normalize and use terminology: "Data Package" - also change in navbar (but nowhere else for the time being). So hvae Data Package - mypkg, Data Package - mypkg - Edit etc
  • pagination is currently lost in amongst the results list. needs to be *much* more obvious, and should appear top and bottom, or at the very least at the bottom!

Related changes (probably separate tickets):

  • Improve user home page to include this additional information (and have it be editable)
  • Use user 'name' (username) for home page links (rather than current user/<id>)
  • Where we show lists of revisions, each revision author is now a link to the author's user page.

#146 defect pudo rgrp closed worksforme Problem when an admin user logs in between commencing editing and saving
  1. Visitor starts editing a package (or creates a new package)
  2. Visitor logs in before previewing or committing
  3. Visitor is an admin (or sysadmin)
  4. Preview or commit fails

Reason (conjecture): the form we use for package editing is now dependent on whether you have admin privileges (we allow editing of state by admins). When you login the old form is now incorrect and this results in the formalchemy fieldset breaking.

#190 defect pudo dread closed fixed Package comments

Cost 7 days

When viewing a package, users can read user comments and leave their own. Users need to be logged in to leave a message. Comments appear immediately. A mechanism for deleting unwanted comments is provided to an authorized user. Comments are sorted with the most recent first. Comments are available for read, creation and deletion in both the Web UI and over the REST API.

The admin for the package and a superuser can delete unwanted comments, both on the package page and a collation of all comments on their user page. Users can delete their own comments(?) Need to consider whether over the REST API we encourage the use of a 'frontend user' APIKEY which can be used to leave comments for another, actual user.

Example at bottom of package page:

It says on the pollution data web page that not all the stations have a CO2 sensor, so you have to extrapolate from the ones that do. See my visualisation of CO2 across London for an idea of what you can do: bertdavies.com/pollution-2008.jpg
