Collecting the data

After setting up, you can collect one of the supported legislative houses (cmbh, almg, cmsp, senado) by using the collect command like this:

./ collect <house>

You can add --debug after the name of the house to get a more verbose output. Note that the collection process happens in a transaction and that the expenses are not added to the main Expense table while the collection is running, so you will not see partial data in the site while collecting.


Yes, we have an API. The Olho Neles API lets you build tools using all data we have collected from legislative houses. All endpoints, parameters and error messages available to the Olho Neles API are docummented.
