django-datafreezer 0.2.0

Data storage Django web application.

# Datafreezer

Datafreezer is a newsroom tool that enables reporters and editors to easily share datasets.

## Features

#### Upload

  • With each upload, users complete a data dictionary, which describes pertinent fields within a dataset. This ensures that uploaded datasets are well documented.
    • Users can either upload a dataset that already has header information, or they can add and remove data dictionary fields.
  • Users can include a URL in which the data was sourced and the app will scrape the page for a headline to save.

  • Tag support (with autocomplete)

#### Browse

  • Users can browse datasets by
    • Uploading user
    • Hub (desk)
    • Vertical (section)
    • Tag
    • Source
  • The app uses a pluggable JSON endpoint to map email addresses to names and certain slugs to names.
    • This endpoint can be a static JSON or an API.
