About

A simple form that will build a query string that can then be used to fetch data from the IATI Datastore API.

See it in action here - http://datastore.iatistandard.org/query/index.php

Requirements

A webserver running php and php-curl.

Installation

Place all the files on your server and visit index.php.

# Clone the repository and enter into the root folder
git clone https://github.com/IATI/IATI-Query-Builder.git
cd IATI-Query-Builder

# You may wish to ensure that the included codelists are up-to-date (optional)
./update-codelists.sh

# Run a webserver
php -S localhost:8000

# Open a browser and visit localhost:8000

Helpers

The /helpers directory has a script refresh_group_data.example.php that you should modify for your needs. Running this script will generate a .json file of groups in use on the IATI registry, and this in turn will populate the group drop down of the form.

The script update-codelists.sh will re-download latest versions of the required codelists.

You could set these up as a cron job on your server.
