OPA API

This provides an API for opa.phila.gov by fetching their data on request, scraping it and providing it in a software-friendly format such as JSON, XML, PHP or Text.
In addition, it scrapes the tax balances for the property from the Department of Revenue web site.
Note that this is a live API and pulls directly from the OPA/Revenue web sites. Therefore it may not be the same data as phillyaddress.com, as phillyaddress.com is static.
