Reegle Climate Tagger CKAN Extension
by Reegle


The reegle Climate Tagger CKAN Extension provides suggested tags for climate compatible content (for CKAN) by introducing an additional field to the add/edit resource form that displays suggested tags from the Climate Tagger API hosted by reegle.

Make your CKAN open government data more easily searchable by leveraging the standardized taxonomy of tags provided by the Climate Tagger tags.

Current status: beta

More information about the tagging API can be found at


  • Climate Tagger tags available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and German

  • Ability to configure the relevance threshhold for tags returned bu the Climate tagger API

  • Clean separation from existing tags fields allows users to manually input their own tags


Fork or download this repository and install into the appropriate CKAN extensions directory. Traditionally, this is at /usr/lib/ckan/default/src/.

git clone

To enable the extension, first activate your CKAN virtualenv:

$ . /usr/lib/ckan/default/bin/activate

Then cd into the extension’s top-level directory and run

(pyenv)$ cd /usr/lib/ckan/default/src/ckanext-climate-tagger
(pyenv)$ python develop

(once configured, you may wish to run python install for production environments)

And lastly, enable the plugin by adding climate_tagger to ckan.plugins in your CKAN config file, usually development.ini on production.ini in /etc/ckan/default.

ckan.plugins = stats text_view recline_view ... climate_tagger
