Metadata should be automagic and low barrier.
pygeometa is a handy little metadata generator tool which is flexible, extensible, and composable. Command line, or via the API, users can generate config files, or pass plain old Python dicts, ConfigParser objects, etc.
We’ve just released 0.2.0 which supports WMO Core Metadata Profile output, as well as better multilingual support. At this point we’re embarking on breaking changes in master led by moving to YAML as the configuration format.
Given pygeometa is pre-1.0 in theory changes can be breaking without support. Still, I’ve cut a 0.2 branch in case anyone’s existing workflows depend on the (now) old pygeometa functionality.
As always, bug reports, feature requests are more than welcome. Hopefully the new enhancements will make metadata management even easier for agile workflows.
