CKAN extension that adds the Web Experience Toolkit to CKAN 2
by Open Data Initiative - Initiative sur les données ouvertes


This CKAN extension adds the Web Experience Toolkit 4.0.x Base theme to CKAN 2.2. This theme is available from the WET-BOEW website.

Please note that this extension does not use the Fanstatic Resource Manager in CKAN. Instead, the WET resources are served directly from the web server.
