A simpler wrapper for Sunlight's Congress API
Sometimes, all you need is the data. This is the simplest possible wrapper I could make. It returns decoded JSON, with some fat trimmed. It should stay out of your way.
>>> from sunlight import Sunlight >>> sunlight = Sunlight(API_KEY) >>> pelosi = sunlight.legislators.get(lastname='pelosi') >>> print pelosi['firstname'] Nancy
This should work with any method on Sunlight’ Congress API defined here: http://services.sunlightlabs.com/docs/Sunlight_Congress_API/
See test.py for more details and examples.
