Validating data on GitHub

This is a very short tutorial on using goodtables.io to continuously validate data hosted on GitHub.

Pre-requisites

Instructions

  1. Login on goodtables.io using your GitHub account and accept the permissions confirmation.
  2. Once we’ve synchronized your repository list, go to the Manage Sources page and enable the repository with the data you want to validate.
    • If you can’t find the repository, try clicking on the Refresh button on the Manage Sources page

Goodtables will then validate all tabular data files (CSV, XLS, XLSX, ODS) and data packages in the repository. These validations will be executed on every change, including pull requests.
