Preview plugin endpoint

Description (last modified by dominik) (diff)

Users could write ckan extensions that offer previews for a certain datatype.


  • We can say that you can add your own previews
  • Every preview would have to define it's own dependencies
  • External development (community creates new extensions?)

Questions to answer:

  • Specification of the interface
  • Precedence of previews for the same data types
  • Plugins only define the datatype that they are responsible for or do we call a function that returns whether the extension is responsible.

As far as I can see, this should be fairly easy to implement by following these instructions: http://docs.ckan.org/en/latest/writing-extensions.html#writing-a-plugin-interface
