A Django app to download IRS 527 filings and load them into a database

Project Description
A Django app for downloading and parsing IRS campaign finance data, inspired by the [New York Times Fech library](https://github.com/NYTimes/Fech).

[![PyPI version](https://badge.fury.io/py/django-irs-filings.svg)](http://badge.fury.io/py/django-irs-filings)
[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/sahilchinoy/django-irs-filings.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/sahilchinoy/django-irs-filings)

Background
---------------
Some political committees report their contributions and expenditures to the IRS under § 527 of the U.S. tax code. The IRS publishes these disclosure forms as a bulk download. This app attempts to make sense of that archive.

The [archive](http://forms.irs.gov/app/pod/dataDownload/dataDownload) is updated every Sunday at 1:00 AM.

Getting started
---------------

Install it.

```bash
$ pip install django-irs-filings
```

Add `irs` to your list of `INSTALLED_APPS` in `settings.py`.

```python
INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'irs',
...
)
```

Migrate your database.

```bash
$ python manage.py migrate irs
```

Finally, call the `updateIRS` command. This will download the latest zipped archive from the IRS website, unzip and parse it, and load it into the database.

```bash
$ python manage.py updateIRS
```
