wq.db provides the following modules:

Extends the excellent Django REST Framework with a collection of views, serializers, and context processors useful for creating a progresively enhanced website that serves as its own mobile app and its own REST API. The core of the library is an admin-like ModelRouter that connects REST urls to registered models, and provides a descriptive configuration object for consumption by’s client-side router. also includes a CRS-aware GeoJSON serializer/renderer.


A collection of design patterns (e.g. identify, relate) that provide long-term flexibility and sustainability for user-maintained data collection applications. These patterns are implemented as installable Django apps.


Like Django itself, wq.db includes a contrib module that provides additional functionality not considered to be part of the “core” library, including a file manager, a search API, and a chart backend.
