The Associated Press just launched AP DataKit, an open-source command-line tool designed to better structure and manage projects. The kit aims to makes it easier to standardize and share work among members of your team, and helps to keep your past projects organized and easily accessible for future reference. AP DataKit works off a basic framework that includes the core product and a few key plugins to help you manage where your data files and code are stored and updated. The kit includes cookiecutter templates so projects can be spun up quickly whenever needed; keeps all parts of a project cleanly separated including data, code, configuration, and documentation; and integrates with cloud storage and hosting.
