Simple FEC API wrapper

Project Description

# FEC API wrapper

by Jake Kara jkara@trendct.org

#### Example 1: Quickstart

>>> from fec import Fec
>>> conn = Fec(YOUR_API_KEY)
>>> ret = conn.get("/candidates")
>>> print ret

#### Example 2: Optionals

ret = conn.get(“/candidates”,
pages=[1,2,3,4,5], # Specify which pages to retrieve params=”&cycle=2012&cycle=2016&office=P”) #Specify parameters

#### Unstable code warning!

At the moment I don’t have plans to develop this into a stable and backwards compatible code base. I haven’t added a lot of conveniences likehard-coding queries you can make. I’m publishing this code in case someone else finds it useful to see how to build a quick API wrapper.

Here are some features I do plan to add:

1. A parameter-forming method so you don’t have to pass all the URL parameters in one mashed-up string.

  1. A method to get all pages of results

3. Rate limit-friendliness? Maybe I’ll make this prevent you from running over API rate limits. Maybe not.

  1. Maybe I will add convenience methods for common queries.
