The dgvat XLS-export extension allows group-admin to export datasets from their organizations to export all datasets to a .xls worksheet. Sysadmins may choose to export datasets from any organization they want or to export all datasets of all groups.
Note: This extension requires ckan 2.2 or higher
Install the plugin to your pyenv-environment.
This will also register a plugin entry point, so you now should be able to add the following to your CKAN .ini file:
ckan.plugins = dgvat_xls <other-plugins>
Set up the needed values in your ini:
dgvat_xls.template = NAME_AND_PATH_OF_YOUR_XLS_TEMPLATE_FILE dgvat_xls.path = FULL_QUALIFIED_PATH - where the generated file should be stored (has to be reachable if you want to download the generated file) dgvat_xls.url = PUBLIC_DIRECTORY_FOR_DOWNLOAD - defaults to "/exportFiles/" used for the download link
The plugin is now reachable at: <your_ckan_url>/export_xls
