DataDeck (once known as datapkggui) is a graphical frontend for the dpm tool (once known as datapkg) (http://dpm.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html). It is aiming to become the standard CKAN (http://thedatahub.org/) graphical tool for searching, fetching and distributing open data sets.

It is a 10 weeks project started on 2011-09-26 and developed by Daniel Graziotin <d@danielgraziotin.it> (http://task3.cc) during a stage performed at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (http://fbk.eu).

Please take a look at docs/report.{odt, pdf} for many other info.


The official website of the project is http://task3.cc/projects/datadeck. The source code is hosted on GitHub (http://github.com/dgraziotin/datadeck)


DataDeck uses Semantic Versioning for defining releases. (http://semver.org)


A sort of changelog can be retrieved at http://task3.cc/tag/datadeck-changelog/ Only some relases are posted in the website. For in-depth changelog, please refer to GitHub project page.

Compatibility Notes

Up to v0.2.3-datapkgguilast, the project was called datapkggui and supported datapkg 0.8. From v0.2.4, the project is renamed to DataDeck and supports dpm >= 0.10.


DataDeck is in development while dpm is also under heavy development. Please note that dpm may have not been "officially" released when you try DataDeck. Therefore, dpm has been pulled out from the dependency check. Please be sure to obtain dpm at https://github.com/okfn/dpm if it has not already been published elsewhere.
