Github repository resource viewer
by Link Digital


A CKAN plugin for previewing GitHub repository resources.


  1. Activate you CKAN python environment and install this extension’s software::

    $ pyenv/bin/activate

    $ pip install -e git+

  2. Enable the extension in your CKAN config file by adding it to ckan.plugins::

    ckan.plugins = githubrepo_view


When creating/editing a resource via the UI, check the ‘GitHub Repository’ checkbox to make this view available. Alternatively, one can update the ‘github_repository’ extras field of the resource to ‘True’ via the CKAN API to make the view available.
