Frictionless Data Case Study

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
In the early days, we knew that we needed to create an open data API but we didn't want to start from scratch. We wanted to build an API that adopted open standards and that would be compatible with several tools from day zero. This was one of the many reasons why we built the Open Data Blend Datasets service using open specifications and patterns from the Frictionless Data project.
What is Frictionless Data? Lifted straight from the Frictionless Data website:
Frictionless [Data] is an open-source toolkit that brings simplicity to the data experience - whether you're wrangling a CSV or engineering complex pipelines.
