HelloSign Ruby SDK

In addition to this readme, checkout our quickstart guide here: https://app.hellosign.com/api/documentation#QuickStart

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'hellosign-ruby-sdk'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Configuration

Create a config block. At a minimum you'll want to set your API Key but depending on your usage you'll possibly want to set your app's Client ID and Client Secret. In Rails you can place it in config/initializers/hello_sign.rb

require 'hello_sign'
HelloSign.configure do |config|
  config.api_key = 'api_key'
  # You can use email_address and password instead of api_key. But api_key is recommended
  # If api_key, email_address and password are all present, api_key will be used
  # config.email_address = 'email_address'
  # config.password = 'password'
end

Usage

When you have configured your app like above, you can start using it:

# get your account
my_account = HelloSign.get_account

# get your signature requests
my_signature_requests = HelloSign.get_signature_requests

# view a specific signature request
signature_request = HelloSign.get_signature_request :signature_request_id => '42383e7327eda33f4b8b91217cbe95408cc1285f'

If you need to authenticate for multiple users and you want a separated client for them, you can run:

client2 = HelloSign::Client.new :api_key => 'your_user_api_key'
user_account = client2.get_account

Specifying files

When using request endpoints that send files, such as a signature request, you can specify files either as

  1. A string representing the path
  2. A Ruby File Object (File.open, then assign to a variable)
  3. A Rails ActionDispatch::Http::UploadedFile

Testing

Testing relies on built in hard-coded fixtures. You can run the tests without affecting your actual account data. To do so from the root of your project run rake spec.

Additional notes

Warnings

Any warnings returned from the API can be accessed by using the 'warnings' accessor on a returned object or list:

my_signature_requests = client.get_signature_requests
puts my_signature_requests.warnings

and will give output of warnings in the following format (as an array of hashes):

[
    [0] {
         "warning_msg" => "Parameter hodor was ignored. Hodor.",
        "warning_name" => "parameter_ignored"
    },
    [1] {
         "warning_msg" => "Email address sirjorah@targarian.org is unconfirmed. Please pledge your allegiance to the queen first.",
        "warning_name" => "unconfirmed"
    }
]

Local callbacks

We do not allow app callbacks (event or OAuth) to be set to localhost. However it is still possible to test callbacks against a local server. Tunneling services such as ngrok (http://ngrok.com) can help you set this up.
