Python library for GovTrack.us API

Project description

A Python wrapper for the GovTrack API (v2).

Based off of: - [https://github.com/cdelguercio/govtrack-python](https://github.com/cdelguercio/govtrack-python) - [https://github.com/markgx/govtrack-node/](https://github.com/markgx/govtrack-node/)

Installation

pip install gt-py

Usage

from gtpy.api import GTPY client = GTPY()

Choose an endpoint:

client.role() client.person() client.cosponsorship() client.vote client.bill() client.vote_voter() client.committee() client.committee_member()

Get a person:

>>>PERSON_ID = 400045 >>>client.person(PERSON_ID) {‘birthday’: ‘1952-10-20’, ‘link’: ‘https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/jeb_bradley/400045’, ‘lastname’: ‘Bradley’…

Filter the results, such as getting all the bills voted by the 144th Congress (supports filtering on all [filterable fields](https://www.govtrack.us/developers/api)):

>>>CONGRESS_ID = 114 >>>client.bill({‘congress’: CONGRESS_ID})

Change the maximum number of results:

>>>client.bill({‘congress’: CONGRESS_ID, ‘limit’: 100})
