Constellate uses the following software:

  • Ghost -- a publishing platform that hosts our “about” and help pages
  • AWS -- our platform is built in the cloud and is currently running in Amazon Web Services.
  • BinderHub -- the web application behind our Analytics Lab
  • Jupyter -- our code tutorials are all written in Jupyter Notebooks
  • Elasticsearch -- the search engine we are using.  Our JSON files are loaded into it, so if you are experienced with queries, feel free to explore a bit with the “keyword search” field on our dataset builder
  • DynamoDB -- the NoSQL database we are using on the back end
