Create new dataset mappings

In this documentation I will use d2s-project-template as example, but you are encouraged to create a new Git repository using the template.

Create dataset folder and mapping files#

Run this command at the root of your repository to generate the dataset mappings files in the datasets folder

d2s new dataset
Provide some dataset metadata

You will be prompted to enter some metadata about the dataset to create.

The dataset readme, mappings, metadata, and download files are created in the datasets/$dataset_id folder.

Check the download script#

Check the download script generated in datasets/$dataset_id/scripts/ and edit it if needed.

We use bash for it's performance and reliability with large file download. But you are free to use a python script or other documented methods.
