Ruby wrapper for Apicalypse

What is Apicalypse?

This repository is not actively maintained, development continues at StefanGreffenius/ruby-apicalypse.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'ruby-apicalypse'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install ruby-apicalypse

Usage

Raw Apicalypse

rawQueryString = "fields a,b,c;limit 50;offset 0;";

Apicalypse.new("https://myapi.com/foobar")
  .query(rawQueryString)
  .request

Apicalypse Query Builder

api = Apicalypse.new("https://myapi.com/foobar")

api
  .fields(:name, :movies, :age) # fetches only the name, movies and age fields
  .limit(50) # limit to 50 results
  .offset(10) # offset results by 10
  .sort(:name) # default sort direction is 'asc' (ascending)
  .sort(:name, :desc) # sorts by name, descending
  .search("Arnold") # search for a specific name (search implementations can vary)
  .where("age > 50 & movies != n") # filter the results

api.request

Optional configurations

By default, the apicalypse query method is put in the request body. If your server doesn't support GET bodies, you can put the request in the URL as instead.

# Raw
Apicalypse.new("https://any-apicalypse-api.com/foobar", {
  queryMethod: :url
})
  .query("limit=50&fields=name")
  .request

# Scoped
Apicalypse.new("https://any-apicalypse-api.com/foobar", {
  queryMethod: :url
})
  .limit(50)
  .fields(:name)
  .request

Both examples will request https://any-apicalypse-api.com/foobar?limit=50&fields=name.

You can also pass custom request headers.

Apicalypse.new("https://any-apicalypse-api.com/foobar", {
  headers: {
    'client-id' => 'your-client-id',
    'Accept'   => 'application/json'
  }
})
  .search('Json Born')
  .request

Real world example

To get access to the IGDB API, please (see their documenation)[https://api-docs.igdb.com/#the-basics]

api_endpoint = 'https://api.igdb.com/v4/games'
request_headers = { headers: { 'client-id' => 'your-twitch-client-id', 'authorization' => 'Bearer your-app-access-token', 'x-user-agent' => 'ruby-apicalypse' } }

api = Apicalypse.new(api_endpoint, request_headers)

api
  .fields(:name, :total_rating)
  .where(category: 1)
  .search('Call of Duty')
  .limit(2)
  .request

# api response

[
  {"id"=>107299, "name"=>"Call of Duty: WWII - Shadow War", "total_rating"=>75.0},
  {"id"=>57700, "name"=>"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare - Retribution", "total_rating"=>60.0}
