Summary: There have been various efforts to collect certain mathematical results into searchable databases. In this paper, we present DiscreteZOO: a repository and a fingerprint database for discrete mathematical objects. At the moment, it hosts collections of vertex-transitive graphs and maniplexes, which are a common generalisation of maps and abstract polytopes. The project encompasses a tool for handling and maintaining collections of objects, as well as a website and SageMath package for interacting with the database. The project aims to become a general platform to make collections of mathematical objects easier to publish and access.
