Ruby library for working with the City of Austin Data Portal. This library is derived from Windy which is a library for interacting with Chicago's Socrata powered data portal.


$ gem install dillo



Views are the most basic buidling blocks of Socrata, these are what you see when you use the website. To get a list of views:

all_views = Dillo.views

This returns an array of views.


To get the data inside of a view use the following:

unclaimed_property = Dillo.views.find_by_id("h3i4-5e5v")

To get an individual record:

record = unclaimed_property[0]

The individual column names now became properties that can be accessed like:

record.first  # first is the name of the column

To search rows by column name you can use the "find_by_columnname" method:

just_first_names = unclaimed_property.find_all_by_first("insert a value")

##Future Plans
