Sunlight::Congress

Build Status

The API this uses has been shutdown. Follow this post for more information.

This is a wrapper for the Sunlight Foundation's Congress API.

It is very much a work in progress, and only supports part of the API. Any assistance with implementing extra calls would be appreciated!

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sunlight-congress'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install sunlight-congress

Usage

The first thing you need to do is set up an API key. You can apply for one here. They're free and have no usage limits.

Once you have your key:

require 'sunlight-congress'

Sunlight::Congress.api_key = "lolthisisnotarealkey"

Then, you can build various objects relating to the API. For example:

Sunlight::Congress::Legislator.by_zipcode("90210")
=> [#<Sunlight::Congress::Legislator:0x007fad4a2f67b0 @first_name="Henry"...
