Right now they look like this:

databases:
  fixtures:
    queries:
      neighborhood_search:
        params:
        - text

In addition to being able to specify defaults, I'd also like to add other things in the future - most significantly the ability to specify a different input widget (e.g. textarea v.s. single-line input)

So maybe this looks like:

params:
- name: text
  default: ""
- name: age
  widget: number
{
    "total_count": 1,
    "+1": 1,
    "-1": 0,
    "laugh": 0,
    "hooray": 0,
    "confused": 0,
    "heart": 0,
    "rocket": 0,
    "eyes": 0
}

I like that idea.

What about allowing default parameters when defining the query in metadata.yml? Something like:

databases:
  fec:
    queries:
      search_by_name:
        params:
            - q
        default-param-values:
             q: "text to search"
        sql: |-
          SELECT...

For now, I'm using a custom database-<file>.html file that hardcodes a default param in the link, but I'd rather not customize the template just for that.

{
    "total_count": 0,
    "+1": 0,
    "-1": 0,
    "laugh": 0,
    "hooray": 0,
    "confused": 0,
    "heart": 0,
    "rocket": 0,
    "eyes": 0
}

This is a good idea. I avoided this initially because it should be possible to run a canned query with a parameter set to the empty string, but that view could definitely be smart enough to differentiate between ?sql=...&param= and ?sql= with no param specified at all.

{
    "total_count": 0,
    "+1": 0,
    "-1": 0,
    "laugh": 0,
    "hooray": 0,
    "confused": 0,
    "heart": 0,
    "rocket": 0,
    "eyes": 0
}
