A fine hat tip to Lisa Nelson for sharing this on Twitter.

From the readme:

This document provides guidelines and examples for White House Web APIs, encouraging consistency, maintainability, and best practices across applications. White House APIs aim to balance a truly RESTful API interface with a positive developer experience (DX).

We're certainly fans of open government around here. This makes us smile.
