For Developers
The ExPaNDS training catalogue is committed to the FAIR principles: making data findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable. As such, all content in our catalogue is available under the CC BY 4.0 licence, and can be accessed through our API and widgets. The codebase is also available to re-use under the BSD Licence, and can be found on GitHub. The original codebase was developed for TeSS in the ELIXIR Project (European Commission, Horizon 2020 Research Infrastructures programme (ELIXIR-EXCELERATE, grant agreement number 676559)).

Widgets are chunks of javascript code that can be copied into website source code to display content. There are several different styles and functionalities available from our configurable widget suite. Widgets can be used to enhance your site and offer your community lists of relevant events or training resources.
