Django CAL-ACCESS documentation

Technical documentation for a collection of applications that make it easier to work with CAL-ACCESS, the jumbled, dirty and difficult government database that tracks campaign-finance and lobbying-activity in California politics. Built using the Django web framework.

This is a work in progress. It is maintained by the California Civic Data Coalition, an open-source team of journalists and computer programmers from news organizations across America. To learn more and get involved, read our backstory in the FAQ and reach out to our leadership team.
