CKAN Javascript library and demonstration web interface

Reported by: rgrp Owned by: rgrp
Priority: critical Milestone: ckan-v1.4-sprint-3
Component: ckan Keywords: wui js external

A plain javascript library for interfacing with CKAN would be very useful (why? see below!). It would also be nice to have a pure html + javascript web interface to CKAN both for its own sake and to act as a demonstrator for the library.


  • Development of bespoke interfaces -- much easier to edit html + javascript than to change ckan core
    • E.g. for specific communities e.g. geodata, science
    • Specialized tasks - multi-package editing
  • Very easy deployment and integration (e.g. can drop in to getthedata or other sites)
