Show IATI: Download a daily snapshot of all IATI data


(Andy Lulham) #1

I posted this on another discussion a while ago, and I only got 2 :heart:s :smile: ! But I use this tool frequently, so I thought I’d share it again.

Lots of IATI tools need to download all IATI data, and they each have their own code to do it. Even on a fast connection, it can take a few hours. Swapping in IATI data dump as a microservice would significantly speed up (for instance) the IATI Dashboard updates (which no longer run daily because of how long it takes).

I also wrote a blog about this.
