Compiling a data dictionary from DHIS2

Hi Devs,

I have tried to pull out full indicator definitions from the DHIS2(in form of a data dictionary) – The API doesn’t give numerators and denominators like an ideal data dictionary should. The indicator table in postgres represents the numerators and denominators as Dataelement uids and categoryoptioncombo uids. I could eventually get something out using multiple find and replace macros in excel but the process was not very linear and has to be done each time a change is done to the metadata outside the DHIS.

Does anyone have any ideas on a simpler way to do this? The old data dictionary functionality could do this….
