Datacentral is a lightweight platform to easily publish and distribute datasets. It uses the Data Packages specification as a common format. By collecting datasets on this site, we make it easier for developers to plug data into projects. See the Frictionless Data for more background.
There is an online authoring and validation tool for data packages developed by Open Knowledge. In CKAN portals, the datapackager extension allows exporting datasets as data packages.
For example data packages, browse datahub.io or the github.com/datasets organisation.
