OpenSecrets

Description

A Ruby wrapper around the OpenSecrets.org API.

You will need to have an OpenSecrets.org API key before you can use this library.

See the OpenSecrets API documentation.

This project was inspired by a project suggestion on the SunlightLabs.com website. If you would like to contribute or learn more please see https://sunlightfoundation.com/

Installation

gem install opensecrets

Usage

See examples/example.rb for more complete examples.

require 'rubygems'
require 'opensecrets'
require 'pp'

# Note, you can also provide your API key in an environment variable for security and convenience.
#   export OPENSECRETS_API_KEY=YOUR_API_KEY
# If you provide your key this way you do not have to provide a key in the OpenSecrets::*.new constructors.
# A key provided to the constructor overrides any environment variable that is set.

member = OpenSecrets::Member.new('YOUR OPEN SECRETS API KEY')
pp member.pfd({:cid => 'N00007360', :year => '2008'})["response"]

cand = OpenSecrets::Candidate.new('YOUR OPEN SECRETS API KEY')
pp cand.summary({:cid => 'N00007360'})["response"]

com = OpenSecrets::Committee.new('YOUR OPEN SECRETS API KEY')
pp com.by_industry({:cmte => 'HARM', :congno => '110', :indus => 'F10'})["response"]
