Features
--------

- Submit a state’s name, postal code or Associated Press abbreviation or [FIPS
code](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Information_Processing_Standards)
and receive a clean object with all other formats as attributes.
- State objects also provide the “stateface” code for [ProPublica’s
web font of state shapes](http://propublica.github.com/stateface/)

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

Getting started is as easy as…

```bash
$ pip install latimes-statestyle
```

Then start feeding it your data:

```python
>>> import statestyle
# Get by postal code
>>> obj = statestyle.get('CA')
# Fiddle with the clean attributes
>>> print obj.name
California
>>> print obj.postal
CA
>>> print obj.ap
Calif.
# Get by FIPS code
>>> obj = statestyle.get(6)
# Same attributes available
>>> print obj.name
California
>>> obj.stateface
"E"
# Here's what happens when you submit something that doesn have a match
>>> statestyle.get("foo")
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "statestyle/__init__.py", line 27, in get
raise ValueError("The state you requested does not exist")
ValueError: The state you requested does not exist
```

Contributing
------------

If you would like to add another feature or change existing data, edit
`statestyle/data.csv` and then run `python build.py`, which will remake
the data file imported by the library.
