LIVES Restaurant Inspection Score Feed Generator

The "gen-lives-feed" script processes restaurant inspection scores published by the City of Austin, and generates an archive that conforms to the LIVES data standard.

For more information on LIVES, see:

http://www.yelp.com/healthscores

When run with no command line arguments, data is retrieved from:

https://data.austintexas.gov/api/views/ecmv-9xxi/rows.json

and saved in LIVES format to:

lives.ci.austin.tx.us.zip

The "gen-lives-feed" script is written in Ruby. It has been tested with Ruby 1.9.3 and uses only standard library modules.

The script requires an external program named "zip" to produce the resulting archive.
