DataSift is built on open source software, from front to back. That's the way we work, because we feel the future lies in open source and we like Wikipedia's description: "a philosophy, or pragmatic methodology that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details."
Open Source Projects
Here are some of the projects that we've created from scratch in the DataSift labs and released as open source software.
Query Builder - graphical way to create DataSift queries. This is the same editor we use on our site and now you can customize it and emebed on your site.
Hubflow - an adaptation of GitFlow and the GitFlow tools git extension for working with GitHub.
Sublime Text CSDL plug-in - validate and compile DataSift CSDL, consume a sample set of interactions, and enjoy correct syntax highlighting. Do it all without leaving Sublime Text!
Dropwizard Extra - extentions to Dropwizard.
