Project Nanite Systems presents a stable alternative to the Census streaming API
The API is a drop-in replacement for Census. Change the URL and you are good to go. Say goodbye to all the bugs.
The project is meant to resolve many of the problems of the Census API. From not receiving messages, to unstable connections.
The project is open-source. Everything is hosted on GitHub. Become part of the project, or host it yourself, the sky is the limit.
