README

Govtrack

Build Status Hex.pm

An elixir wrapper for the govtrack.us API that provides programmatic access to information about the U.S. Congress.

Installation

Available through Hex, and can be installed by:

  1. Adding govtrack to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

    def deps do
    [{:govtrack, "~> 0.7.3"}]
    end
    
  2. Ensuring govtrack is initialized before your main elixir application:

    def application do
    [applications: [:govtrack]]
    end
    

Usage

This Govtrack module is meant to be a simple wrapper for the official govtrack.us API. The module automatically parses the JSON response and provides a few sensible defaults to common queries.

Supported Endpoints:

Basic Usage

Govtrack.bills        #=> Fetch all bills, ordered by most recently updated

Govtrack.bill(12700)  #=> Fetch information about a specific bill

Querying

An optional query parameter can be passed to all the supported endpoints to narrow the results. The specific query strings are dictated by the govtrack API.

Govtrack.roles([current: true, state: "NY"])    #=> Fetch all representatives for the State of New York.
