WriteToThem lets you contact elected representatives in the United Kingdom.
If you want to build your own site for writing to people, we recommend you take a look at WriteIt instead. WriteToThem is a legacy project with many particular quirks, whereas WriteIt was built from the start to be more flexible and easier to use.
WriteToThem uses the Foundation framework, and
styles are compiled using Compass. Before you start
editing files you will need some prerequisites, which can be installed as
follows (you may need to use
gem install zurb-foundationwill install the necessary components of the framework.
gem install compasswill install Compass, ready to compile assets.
The Sass files used to compile styles are located in
cd to the
web/static directory and run
compass compile. If
you are making frequent changes,
compass watch will watch the directory for
changes and recompile when necessary.
Thanks to Browserstack who let us use their web-based cross-browser testing tools for this project.
