Hi all,

A first alpha version of a CKAN extension has been released.

What does it do now:

When a dataset is added CKAN and the format is JSON or XML, the link 
will automatically be added to CKAN. The preview of the dataset will 
then show some links towards The DataTank resources, e.g.: 


* Clone this repo: https://github.com/tdt/ckanext-tdt
* put it in the folder where your ckan extensions are installed and 
perform "python setup.py install"
* add "tdt" in front of all the plugins you got installed in your 
/etc/ckan/default/*.ini file
* add your credentials to the conifguration as well (see README.md)

Have fun and feel free to fork!
