This is a Rails app providing a JSON-based API for the congress_forms gem.
Start by coping the example config.
$ cp .env.example .env $ cp docker-compose.yml.example docker-compose.yml # if using docker
Fill in the
DATABASE_* variables with your postgres address/credentials, and the
CWC_* variables with your Communicating with Congress vendor information (see the congress_forms README for more documentation on CWC).
ADMIN_* variables are optional. They set the basic auth credentials used by the /delayed_job admin area.
DEBUG_KEY is required for access to some API endpoints. Read the API documentation for more information.
If you're using docker, at this point you can build the containers. Either way be sure to run
rake db:setup to initialize the database, and then you should be done!
When a message can't be delivered, it is saved into a delayed_job queue and attempted again later. To process this queue you need to run a delayed job worker:
$ rake jobs:work
The example docker-compose configuration includes a container running this command.
