Nasqueron Datasources

From Nasqueron Agora

Nasqueron Datasources is a collection of tools and libraries, mostly written in Rust, to fetch and enrich data.


Datasources components

FANTOIR (fantoir-datasource)

fantoir-datasource is a CLI tool to import the FANTOIR database into PostgreSQL. It's built with pipeline as a code in mind, so we can run it when a new FANTOIR version is released.

It also can enrich data from Wikidata, to qualify ways and offer rich typography labels. During that operation, it can generate a maintenance report.

See fantoir-datasource for how to use instructions.

Helper components

The datasources repository contains the following libraries:

  • The opendatasoft-explore-api crate allows to query the Opendatasoft Explore API from Rust code. This API software is for example used for for open data.

A SPARQL client can also be extracted from fantoir-datasource to be published as a standalone library (and so be used in outside projects).


The following relations exist in our components:

  • fantoir-datasource uses opendatasoft-explore-api to check if a new version is available and get the URL


The Nasqueron Databases project on DevCentral is used for any issue, code idea, bug or task.
