BlockIo

This Ruby Gem is the official reference client for the Block.io payments API. To use this, you will need the Dogecoin, Bitcoin, or Litecoin API key(s) from Block.io. Go ahead, sign up :)

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'block_io'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install block_io -v=1.2.0

Changelog

06/25/18: Remove support for Ruby < 1.9.3 (OpenSSL::Cipher::Cipher). Remove connection_pool dependency.
01/21/15: Added ability to sweep coins from one address to another.
11/04/14: Fix issue with nil parameters in an API call.
11/03/14: Reduce dependence on OpenSSL. PBKDF2 function is now Ruby-based. Should work well with Heroku's libraries.
10/18/14: Now using deterministic signatures (RFC6979), and BIP62 to hinder transaction malleability.

Usage

It's super easy to get started. In your Ruby shell ($ irb), for example, do this:

require 'block_io'
BlockIo.set_options :api_key => 'API KEY', :pin => 'SECRET PIN', :version => 2

And you're good to go:

BlockIo.get_new_address
BlockIo.get_my_addresses
