Python library supporting the development of cross-linguistic databases

Project description

Python library to support publication of cross-linguistic databases maintained by the Cross Linguistic Linked Data project.

Documentation is available at readthedocs.

Code is at github.



Better configurability of the OLAC interface.


Backwards incompatible changes:

  • clld now requires clldutils, thus all functionality now available in clldutils has been removed from clld.
  • clld does not depend on anymore, but instead uses clldutils.path, which in turn uses pathlib2 for python 2.7 and the standard library’s pathlib on python 3.4 for object oriented file system path handling.


Removed obsolete functionality.


Turns out we now rely on a rather recent feature of requests, so we better make this transparent in the requirements.


Due to the shutdown of the Google Feeds API the CLLD.Feed javascript component broke. This release provides functionality to help apps reimplement the lost functionality.


Bugfix release, fixes

It seems will stick with www-01 as canonical subdomain for ISO 639-3 related resources.


Bugfix release, fixes


Improvements to make client development easier. In particular see


Fixing a bug for pacific centered maps of a single language, where the center coordinates were not corrected accordingly. This fix turned into a refactoring of the GeoJSON generation, reverting back to not using __geo_interface__ since this means sprinkling GeoJSN-creating code over multiple modules.


fixed bug where weird author lists could not be parsed.


fixed bug where the freeze function would fail on non-ascii dataset metadata.


Feature-complete release of the clld framework.

Backwards incompatible changes:

  • can now be included like a regular pyramid package. The get_configurator function is gone.
  • Pacific centered maps can now be configured using an appconf.ini setting. This setting is in effect across all GeoJSON objects of an app. The method GeoJson.get_coordinates which was used to plug pacific centered coordinates into GeoJson is gone.

New features:

  • Upon installation clld does now install several command line scripts, to make functionality available which before had to be accessed using per-app scripts.
