datasette plugin to explore CLDF datasets

Project description


Datasette plugin to explore CLDF datasets

Build Status codecov PyPI

CLDF datasets can be easily loaded into SQLite databases (running the cldf createdb command provided with pycldf). Thus, they can be readily explored via the web interface provided by datasette.

This plugin exploits the "semantics" of CLDF to customize datasette, e.g. to display glottocode columns as hyperlinks to or to display rows of an ExampleTable component as interlinear glossed text, i.e. with aligned morphemes and glosses.


datasette-cldf customizes datasette by providing

Thus, instead of calling the datasette cli directly, ỳou call the datasette.serve subcommand, which this package registers with cldfbench:

cldfbench datasette.serve PATH/TO/cldf-metadata.json


We'll show the customizations provided by this plugin with a series of screenshots of datasette serving the World Atlas of Language Structures.

  • Languages are displayed on a map

  • Language details also show a map

  • and link to feature values of the language

  • Feature pages list possible values and their distribution
