London Ontario's City Budget API == Development Setup == Clone the project to a web-accessible folder. git clone git://github.com/rtraction/citybudget.git citybudgetapi Copy application/config/config.sample.php to application/config/config.php. Edit application/config/config.php and put your URL into $config['base_url']. Copy application/config/database.sample.php to application/config/database.php. Configure your database settings in application/config/database.php. Note: If you are going into a production environment you should not make application/controllers/import.php publicly available. Run citybudget.sql into your database. That's it! Test your setup by navigating to the site, for example: http://localhost/citybudgetapi/api/organizations/ Most important files are in application/controllers/ application/models/ application/views/ For more information about working with RESTful services in Code Igniter, check out http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/working-with-restful-services-in-codeigniter-2/ Code Strong, Open Data London == What is this project? == The budget data for London is currently available on the city website in PDF form. This is not a very useful format for creating visualizations and applications. This project takes the city budget, that has been manually entered into a spreadsheet by volunteers, and imports it into a database. Now the data can be accessed programmatically and displayed with this API. Check it out in action at http://budget.opendatalondon.com/ We're hoping to have some cool apps implementing this software by the end of Open Data Hackathon Day :)
