CKAN extension for creating/distributing budget data packages

Project description

A CKAN extension that improves handling of budget data in CKAN. Central to the budget data handling are budget data packages.

When a CSV file is uploaded to CKAN and the CSV includes all of the headers defined in the budget data package specification, the dataset is automatically converted into a budget data package (i.e. it can be exported as a budget data package). So automatically the budget data distribution is standardised and becomes usable in the different tools that support budget data packages.


This CKAN extension can be installed via pypi using pip:

pip install ckanext-budgets

If you have followed the CKAN installation documentation remember to activate your CKAN environment (virtual environment) before installing the extension:

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

Then add budgets to the list in ckan.plugins in your CKAN configuration file. Restart your webserver and budget data is automatically handled for you.


  • ckan.budgets.specification - JSON schema file to describe the budget data package specification used.

  • ckan.budgets.countries - JSON object with country codes as keys and country names as values. Use this if you want to translate the country names into another language (default is English).

  • ckan.budgets.currencies - JSON object with currency code as keys and currency names as values. Use this if you want to translated the currency names into another language (default is English).

  • ckan.budgets.statuses - JSON object representing the different status of data with keys as proposed, approved, adjusted or executed) and with the English description of those statuses as values. Use this if you want to translate description into another language (status keys should remain intact).

  • - Country code of a default country which is auto-selected.
