Qu is a framework for building data APIs.

Qu was created to serve the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's public data sets.

A Data Platform

Qu serves up data stored in MongoDB. Qu provides an API that allows for rich queries of the data.


Qu queries are very similar to the SODA 2.0 API.

Data is imported into Qu using a JSON variant of Google's Dataset Publishing Language.

Qu is REST-ful. Using hypermedia and response headers, it should present a fully-discoverable API to clients.

Open Source

Qu is an open-source project. Your contributions are invited! See the code at GitHub.
