Publishing Datasets

Publishing a qri dataset from your local machine makes use of Qri Cloud, our global platform for finding and sharing datasets. Publishing does a couple of things:

  • It copies the bytes for a dataset to Qri Cloud, effectively backing up and serving the dataset on the Qri network
  • It creates a dataset preview page at{username}/{datasetname}, where other users can preview the dataset before downloading it.
  • It makes the dataset discoverable using search in Qri Cloud and Qri Desktop.

Publishing in Qri Desktop

Publishing in Qri CLI

Use the command qri publish to publish the latest version of a dataset.

Qri Cloud is currently in alpha status and is experimental. All data on Qri Cloud is public. Be careful when publishing your datasets.
