Proof of Automation

Automated uploading of datasets to the open data portal, and subsequent ingestion into the catalog.

I created a text file of urls that is processed by cron on data.louisvilleky.gov, that loops through each file url, downloads and imports it into the Open Data catalog. From there, it uses drush to automatically import a select group of datasets into MySQL, which also makes those datasets available via a REST API.
