Industrial Giving to State Politics

A repository for our "Law, Money and Politics" hack day project. A live demo of the work-in-progress can be found at http://hackjersey.broadstreetads.com/

Setup

To run the application on localhost:8080:

  1. Install Python, if you haven't already
  2. Install the requirements: pip install -r requirements.txt
  3. Create a file containing your API key at sunlight.key (or use environment variable SUNLIGHT_API_KEY)
  4. Start the application on your local machine: python politics.py

About the data

All of our data comes from the National Institute on Money in State Politics via the Sunlight Foundation's Influence Explorer API.

About the project

This project began during a one-day hack at NJIT as part of Hack Jersey's "Law, Money and Politics" event on Sept. 21, 2013. View our CONTRIBUTORS.md for a full list of those who have helped us get this far.

You can read all about our planning and development process on our wiki: https://github.com/HackJersey/politics/wiki

Although this project is focused on New Jersey political campaigns, we'd love to see it extended elsewhere. Please fork the repo and work on it and send us a pull request.
