During the week-end this vision made another evolution step: I understood that The Python serializer as data format is too limiting. The data format must be plain Python, not some part of Lino or Django.
Today I invested another full day of work in this topic. Starting with two observations:
“Paris is the capital of France” is an example of what the Wikipedia calls Common Knowledge.
The Estonian national statistic institute maintains a “List of classificators” (Klassifikaatorite nimistu), and one of them is “Classification of Estonian administrative units and settlements” (Eesti haldus- ja asustusjaotuse klassifikaator (EHAK). Unfortunately this file is not directly useable because it has no zip codes.
At the end of the day I had opened three new projects on GitHub:
lino.modlib.countries.fixtures.be to use this data.
