Datasette plugin for importing tables from other Datasette instances


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ datasette install datasette-import-table


Visit /-/import-table for the interface. Paste in the URL to a table page on another Datasette instance and click the button to import that table.

By default only the root actor can access the page - so you'll need to run Datasette with the --root option and click on the link shown in the terminal to sign in and access the page.

The import-table permission governs access. You can use permission plugins such as datasette-permissions-sql to grant additional access to the write interface.


To set up this plugin locally, first checkout the code. Then create a new virtual environment:

cd datasette-import-table
python3 -mvenv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Or if you are using pipenv:

pipenv shell

Now install the dependencies and tests:

pip install -e '.[test]'

To run the tests:
