Pulling non-mirrored codelists?

(Matt Geddes) #1


Please can I ask how other people handle the codelists that are not directly mirrored by IATI? For DAC5 etc we (a computer) can pull them directly, but for e.g. the Humanitarian sectors/clusters, the IATI codelist links to a webpage where you can download them as a csv - of course we can write a scraper to locate the CSV and download it, and then deal with the import - but this could easily break and is reliant on a non IATI third party.

Any tips for how everyone else handles this? Any pointers to why some codelists are integrated (therefore higher class IATI citizens) and others are not?

Thanks a lot,
