CKAN API

The London DataStore API is driven by CKAN. Read the full CKAN API documentation for further details. Some example uses, taken from the core documentation:

CKAN’s Action API is a powerful, RPC-style API that exposes all of CKAN’s core features to API clients. All of a CKAN website’s core functionality (everything you can do with the web interface and more) can be used by external code that calls the CKAN API.
