The introduction of Dataverse APIs has fostered the development of a variety of software applications that are listed in the Integrations, External Tools, and Reporting Tools and Common Queries sections of the Admin Guide.

The apps below are open source and demonstrate how to use Dataverse APIs. Some of these apps are built on Client Libraries that are available for Dataverse APIs in Python, Javascript, R, and Java.


Data Explorer

Data Explorer is a GUI which lists the variables in a tabular data file allowing searching, charting and cross tabulation analysis.

Data Curation Tool

Data Curation Tool is a GUI for curating data by adding labels, groups, weights and other details to assist with informed reuse.

File Previewers

File Previewers are tools that display the content of files - including audio, html, annotations, images, PDF, text, video - allowing them to be viewed without downloading.


TwoRavens is a system of interlocking statistical tools for data exploration, analysis, and meta-analysis.


Please note that there are multiple Python modules for Dataverse APIs listed in the Client Libraries section.


dataverse-sample-data allows you to populate your Dataverse installation with sample data. It makes uses of pyDataverse, which is listed in the Client Libraries section.

Texas Digital Library dataverse-reports

Dataverse Reports for Texas Digital Library generates and emails statistical reports for an installation of Dataverse using the native API and database queries.


OSF allows you to view, download, and upload files to and from a Dataverse dataset from an Open Science Framework (OSF) project.


Geoconnect allows Dataverse files to be visualized and explored on WorldMap. Read more about it in the WorldMap: Geospatial Data Exploration section of the User Guide.


dataverse-metrics aggregates and visualizes metrics across multiple Dataverse installations but can also be used with a single installation

Whole Tale

Whole Tale enables researchers to analyze data using popular tools including Jupyter and RStudio with the ultimate goal of supporting publishing of reproducible research packages.


Archivematica is an integrated suite of open-source tools for processing digital objects for long-term preservation.


repo2docker is a command line tool that allows you to create and start a Docker image from a code repository that follows the [reproducible executable environment specification]( repo2docker supports Dataverse DOIs to find and retrieve datasets.


Please note that there is a Java library for Dataverse APIs listed in the Client Libraries section.


The open-source DVUploader tool is a stand-alone command-line Java application that uses the Dataverse API to upload files to a specified Dataset. Files can be specified by name, or the DVUploader can upload all files in a directory or recursively from a directory tree. The DVUploader can also verify that uploaded files match their local sources by comparing the local and remote fixity checksums. Source code, release 1.0.0- jar file, and documentation are available on GitHub. DVUploader’s creation was supported by the Texas Digital Library.

Dataverse for Android

Dataverse for Android makes use of Dataverse’s Search API.



The Open Journal Systems (OJS) Dataverse Plugin adds data sharing and preservation to the OJS publication process.


The Dataverse module from OpenScholar allows Dataverse widgets to be easily embedded in its web pages:
