Data Package and Data Package Manager (dpm)


Data Package Manager (dpm, and formerly datapkg) is an user tool for distributing, discovering and installing data (and content) ‘packages’.

dpm is a simple way to’‘package’ data building on existing packaging tools developed for code (e.g. Debian apt, PyPI, CRAN, Gems, CPAN). dpm is designed to integrate closely with the CKAN instances.

For a longer overview see this blog post ‘Introducting datapkg’ and the dpm documentation.
