Ruby programmer? It’s easy to use this data in your own app! Use the gem like this:

require 'everypolitician'
country = Everypolitician::Index.new.country('Israel')
house = country.legislature('Knesset')
house.popolo.terms.find_by(id: 'term/20').memberships.each do |membership|
  puts "#{membership.person.name} (#{membership.party.name}): #{membership.person.gender}"
end

Libraries also available in Python and PHP.

Anything wrong? If you've spotted an error, or the data is incomplete, here's how to get that fixed.
