Chicago Works For You

Chicago Works For You is a collection of tools to track and compare 311 requests in Chicago.

This project is a fork of the awesome 311.fm application designed and built by Code for America developers Jesse Bounds, Angel Kittiyachavalit, and Mick Thompson.

Technical Details

The core application is a node.js app built on the Backbone Boilerplate framework.

The application queries a data API for ward comparison statistics. Code for the data API is hosted in the smartchicago/311-fm-data repository. The API operates at http://chicagoworks-api.herokuapp.com/.

To run the server locally, run:

npm install -g
bbb server

The application will boot and be available at http://localhost:8000/, and query the production API endpoint.

Contributing

Pull requests, issue reports, and suggestions are welcome. The project is supported by the Smart Chicago Collaborative.
