Ruby wrapper for the Trademe API
API available at: developer.trademe.co.nz
gateway = Trademe::Gateway.new authorize_url = gateway.generate_request_token(callback, key, secret) session[:request_token] = gateway.request_token redirect_to authorize_url
Upon return to callback url (with params set):
gateway = Trademe::Gateway.new gateway.request_token = session[:request_token] if gateway.get_access_token(params[:oauth_verifier]) session[:access_token] = gateway.access_token end
You are now verified!
Currently the OAuth system has been implemented so that searches are counted against the “Authenticated rate limit” as per the Trademe website. You can perform searches via the gateway if you have been authorized or not, but non authorized searches are limited to 60 requests per hour!
Perform API searches via:
gateway.search "property/residential", :search_string => "flash apartment", :date_from => 4.hours.ago
This will return the parsed JSON response
Planning to add these at some point:
Total API coverage
Requests for private data that needs authentication
Feel free to get in touch! It is very early days as the Trademe API was release a week ago. If you want to push a patch, please fork the project, commit the patch to the fork and submit a pull request.
