Project description

DataViewAnalytics CKAN Extension

This extension displays analytics on resources by analysing the country and occupation of visitors to every resource/data.
This extension is presently on development and is not officially released for use yet. You should only install if you are a developer and want to contribute to the project.

To install and set up CKAN, visit [CKAN Documentation](

Then follow the steps below to install the DataViewAnalytics extension:

Step 1:

* Activate your virtual environment; use the path to your virtual environment. On Mac OSX, you may have to use `/usr/local/lib/ckan/default/bin/activate`. You can copy the code as is below, including the preceeding dot.

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

Step 2:

* Install the extension

>You can download the source code and install the extension manually. To do so, execute the following command:
> ```bash
> pip install -e git+
> ```
> **Alternatively**: You can clone this repo (preferably into the /src directory where you installed CKAN), cd into ckanext-dataviewanalytics and run
> python develop
> ```
> Install necessary requirements
> pip install -r requirements.txt
> ```

Step 3:

* Modify your configuration file (generally in `/etc/ckan/default/production.ini`) and add `dataviewanalytics` to the `ckan.plugins` property.

ckan.plugins = dataviewanalytics <OTHER_PLUGINS>

Step 4:

* Restart your server:

paster serve /etc/ckan/default/production.ini


paster serve --reload /etc/ckan/default/production.ini

With `--reload`, your server is restarted automatically whenever you make changes to your source code.
