Diário Oficial is the Brazilian government gazette, one of the best places to know the latest actions of the public administration, with distinct publications in the federal, state and municipal levels.
Even with recurrent efforts of enforcing the Freedom of Information legislation across the country, official communication remains - in most of the territories - in PDFs.
The goal of this same project is to upgrade Diário Oficial to the year when it gets published, making accessible information that is currently only available.
Build and Run
If you want to understand how Diário Oficial works, you'll want to get the source, build it, and run it locally.
After you cloned the repository, you may want to run the following from the source folder:
$ make setup $ docker-compose up
Once the download and building processes are finished, the processing tasks should start running in background, and the web server should be available at http://localhost:8080/.
If you are interested in fixing issues and contributing directly to the code base, please see the document CONTRIBUTING.md.
This project is maintained by Open Knowledge Foundation Brasil, thanks to the support of Digital Ocean and hundreds of other names.
