A tool to grab a snapshot of data from the IATI Registry.
Creator: caprenter

Detailed Description

This is really a collection of php and shell scripts that can be run to get you some fresh data from the registry.
It will:

  • fetch a list of groups publishing on the registry
  • fetch the URLs of all the files each group is publishing
  • fetch all the XML data from each of those urls and save them in a useful directory structure


Released under the GNU General Public License

There are no great plans for this. If you can take it and improve it, please do! I often adapt it to just pull data from a single publisher.

People are working with the registry and the CKAN API to look at how they can be notified of general updates to keep their data fresh.
These tools are not really meant to do that.
