Sound Off

Sound Off is a civic engagment tool built for Headcount that makes it super easy to tweet at your elected representatives.

It's built on some amazing open source technologies like:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Angular JS
  • Event Machine

And uses some amazing API's like:

  • Sunlight's Open Congress
  • Twitter

Currently in development - check the website for our current progress. Issues / Features tracked in github

Standing It Up

You'll want to run rake db:seed after the usual (bundle install; rake db:migrate) to seed the database with representatives.

Deploying

rake deploy is a useful tool to pre generate all of the SoundOff's assets, commit them to a throwaway branch, and deploy that branch to Heroku.
