CKAN extension to publish public datasets in the FIWARE Store as offerings
by CoNWeT Lab. Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

CKAN Store Publisher Build Status

CKAN extension that allows users to publish datasets in the FIWARE Store (as offerings) in a simpler way. To do so, a new tab is added in the Datasets Manage menu that offers a form to set the basic options of the offering.

Offerings are not automatically published so the dataset creator must access this form and complete it in order to publish the dataset in the FIWARE Store.

Note: This software is intended to integrate a CKAN instance with the FIWARE Store so it won’t probably work with other Stores.



Install this extension in your CKAN instance is as easy as intall any other CKAN extension.

  • Download the source from this GitHub repo.
  • Activate your virtual environment (generally by running . /usr/lib/ckan/default/bin/activate)
  • Install the extension by running python install
  • Modify your configuration file (generally in /etc/ckan/default/production.ini) and add storepublisher in the ckan.plugins setting.
  • In the same config file, specify the location of FIWARE Store by adding the ckan.storepublisher.store_url setting. In addition, you must also set the Repository used by the store. To do so, add the ckan.storepublisher.repository setting
  • Restart your apache2 reserver (sudo service apache2 restart)
  • That’s All!


This sofware contains a set of test to detect errors and failures. You can run this tests by running the following command:

nosetests --ckan --with-pylons=test.ini ckanext/storepublisher/tests/

Note: The test.ini file contains a link to the CKAN test-core.ini file. You will need to change that link to the real path of the file in your system (generally /usr/lib/ckan/default/src/ckan/test-core.ini).

You can also generate coverage reports by running: ``` nosetests –ckan –with-xunit –with-pylons=test.ini ckanext/storepublisher/tests/ –with-coverage –cover-package=ckanext.storepublisher –cover-inclusive –cover-erase . –cover-xml
