About

hoax.ly creates open-source tools that provide technological assistance with teaching people to be data literate consumers.

Central for these tools is an index about fact-checks from various sources. There are a lot of high-quality fact checking sites out there. We aggregate metadata from these sites and make it available via an open API, so that people can use it to build awesome tools and apps.

We also are going to build some tools consuming this data: A browser extension, some chatbots for various platforms and a fact checking search site.

This project has been initiated by acolono GmbH and is supported by netidee.at.
