datarequests.org Open Source

Open Source is at the very core of datarequests.org. We have designed the project from the ground up to be as open as possible. Our constitution requires us to publish our content under free licenses.

We are huge proponents of Open Source and believe in it.

Our Open Source repositories

Here is an overview of important repositories that we have created—directly or indirectly—for datarequests.org. They are of course published under free licenses. We invite you to take a look behind the curtain, contribute or use our work for your own projects!

Some of the development work is currently done on a private GitLab instance. We do however mirror all commits to GitHub and still welcome issues and pull requests through the GitHub mirror repositories, of course.
