Citizen reuse of OpenData requires technical skills that everyone does not have : reprocessing of heterogeneous formats, recovery tools, inadequate documentation ... OpenData is ok for geeks, but what about the others?

The publishing tool SPIP overcomes technical barriers to publish and broadcast on the Internet. Latest version now allows to use the Web as a database, as simply SPIP has always done with SQL, without technical requirement.

On concrete examples, we see how SPIP allows easy reading, formatting, and republication of external data in formats as diverse as CSV, ICS, XML, JSON, RSS, YAML, etc.. becoming an interesting tool for data reuse.


Cedric Morin is a freelance consultant in web development. He is heavily involved in the development of the free SPIP project since 2006, and co-founder of Nursit hosting service, dedicated to SPIP.

Passionate about technology, always looking for a challenge, he is particularly interested in the democratization of technology.
