I'm making Data Curator - a simple CSV editor to make Data Packages. I'd like to load these up to CKAN but the CKAN Data Package extension doesn't currently support v1.0 packages. I'd like to know if there are plans to update the extension to enable Data Packages to be uploaded via the user interface and API? Happy to help with testing.

@Stephen-Gates are you using https://github.com/ckan/ckanext-datapackager ?

That was an early attempt at integrating data packages by @vitorbaptista , but more recently we’ve taken a more comprehensive approach to integrating Frictionless Data into several workflows in CKAN. This work is being led by @amercader (CKAN Tech Lead) here https://github.com/frictionlessdata/ckanext-validation

So, I think there are two issues:

  1. Time to update ttps://github.com/ckan/ckanext-datapackager to v1 specs (should be quite trivial, as most changes are internal to the datapackage dependency). @vitorbaptista and @roll can look at this together and provide me with a time estimate for the work here, and we’ll likely do the update shortly if it is straightforward…. But

  2. It may be better, if you have control to add extensions, to use https://github.com/frictionlessdata/ckanext-validation when it is ready.

@pwalsh I'm not aware of any Australian ckan instances using the data package extension. I'd like to make a recommendation that to my sponsor who is open to making changes. It would be great to have a view on the timelines for both options so an informed choice can be made.

@Stephen-Gates ok. Let’s sync with @amercader on Monday and see when we can deploy https://github.com/frictionlessdata/ckanext-validation

Ok @pwalsh. Am I right in assuming ckanext-validation only presents an API and not a user interface?

@Stephen-Gates no, also user interface, but not sure on how much work is required for that at this stage.
