Sinatra app ShineYourEye preview
While working at mySociety, I helped build and define what will become the new Pombola Lite approach to building parliamentary monitoring sites. Some of my tasks included creating and separating the core-backend code from the custom-site-specific code in a Sinatra application, so that it can be used with other countries in the future and not just with Shine your Eye.

It has the same approach as the viewer-sinatra project, i.e., the site generated by Sinatra is then scraped to generate a static site served by GitHub pages. I wrote about the technical details of this process in this blog post.
