OpenFEMA API Explorer

My attempt at creating an API Explorer for OpenFEMA for #hackforchange. http://hackforchange.org/challenges/interactive-api-explorer/

This was created at the National Day of Civic Hacking hackathon at RIT.

I used the CodeIgniter framework for the backend and Twitter Bootstrap for the frontend. To help me from killing FEMA's servers, I use PHP's APC to cache some of the API calls. The frontend also uses jQuery, underscore.js, and some other scripts I found when Googling around.

The FEMA API docs are located here: http://www.fema.gov/openfema-api-documentation

I have a live demo of this program running at https://apiexplorer.org/. Please don't kill my server's bandwidth, kthxbai :-)
