This place documents the backend of our website.

This backend provides an interface to access to three distinct portuguese public databases:

We build and maintain an open source website and API for querying these databases. Specifically, this project consists in three components:

  • A database in postgres and driven by Django ORM, remotely accessible.
  • An API for querying the database using Django and Python.
  • A website for visualizing the database and sharing statistical features of it.

How can you use it?

To navigate in the database and discover some of its features, you can visit the website.

To use the API, e.g. to ask your own questions to the database, you must first install it.

To contribute to this API and/or website, see section Install development environment.
