We are proud to announce that we have licensed the codebase of DataSync under the MIT open source license.

DataSync is an easy-to-use desktop data publishing application that Socrata users love. It is a simple, yet powerful publishing tool that lets users easily update Socrata datasets programmatically and automatically — that is, scheduled — without writing a single line of code. DataSync jobs can be scheduled using scheduling tools such as the Windows Scheduler or Cron. DataSync works on any platform that runs Java (i.e. Windows, Mac, and Linux).

We are excited to release the code to the data publishing developer community and are eager to see how that community extends, adapts, and improves upon the code. 

The DataSync GitHub repository is here.
