Gather speaker data from ORCID

Project description

This is a plugin for pretalx, connecting pretalx users with ORCID. It adds an additional, non-mandatory step in the CfP process, allowing submitters to connect their ORCID account with their pretalx account.

Consequently, their name (as separate first and last name), their biography, their title, and their organisation will be pre-filled from ORCID data. (Additional data fields can be added – please open a PR if you are missing a field!)

Development setup

  1. Make sure that you have a working pretalx development setup.

  2. Clone this repository, eg to local/pretalx-orcid.

  3. Activate the virtual environment you use for pretalx development.

  4. Execute python develop within this directory to register this application with pretalx’s plugin registry.

  5. Execute make within this directory to compile translations.

  6. Update your database scheme with python -m pretalx migrate.

  7. Restart your local pretalx server. You can now use the plugin from this repository for your events by enabling it in the ‘plugins’ tab in the settings.
