New! Full Source Code Published
Update: Code has moved location, updated the URLs and text accordingly.
We're really keen for others to use both our code and the data feeds we make available to make the UK's Parliament more accessible.
Most notably, we've published the source code for the front and back end of TheyWorkForYou.com. It's available here: https://secure.mysociety.org/cvstrac/dir?d=mysociety/twfy for the front end website, and http://www.knowledgeforge.net/project/ukparse/ for the backend scraper and parser.
But there's more! Below, you'll find links to various other open data feeds and resources we've produced to date:
http://ukparse.kforge.net/parlparse/ - XML files of debates / written answers back to June 2001 (House of Commons only - not Westminster Hall); MP id and constituency index files; how to use the parser source code.
http://www.publicwhip.org.uk/project/data.php - MP performance data; voting record matrices.
https://www.theyworkforyou.com/rss/mp/10508.rdf - Typical MP 'recent appearances' RSS feed, uses person id.
