Tools

There are a growing number of tools available to support implementation of OCDS.

Tools developed by the core team will be available at https://github.com/open-contracting/.

Core tools

OCDS Validator

The OCDS validator can be found at http://standard.open-contracting.org/validator/ and can be used to:

  • Check releases and records against the JSON OCDS schema;
  • Provide basic statistics on the data contained within OCDS files;
  • Convert between flat and structured JSON formats.

OCDS Merge

This python library provides functions to merge a list of OCDS Releases into either a compiledRelease or a versionedRelease needed to create an OCDS record.

ocdsmerge is available as a python package, or on GitHub along with usage instructions.

Community tools

We will be developing a list of community developed tools which consume or produce OCDS data here.

In the meantime, please share suggestions for tools with the mailing list.

Archived tools

A number of older tools, created during the development of the standard, can be found in the Open Contracting Archive GitHub organization.
