SuperSaaS Ruby API Client

Online bookings/appointments/calendars in Ruby using the SuperSaaS scheduling platform - https://supersaas.com

The SuperSaaS API provides services that can be used to add online booking and scheduling functionality to an existing website or CRM software.

Prerequisites

  1. Register for a (free) SuperSaaS account, and
  2. get your account name and password.
Dependencies

Ruby 1.9 or greater.

No external libraries. Only the native json and net/http standard libs are used.

Installation

1: Gemfile

The SuperSaaS Ruby API Client is available from RubyGems and can be included in your project GemFile. Note, the supersaas-api-client may update major versions with breaking changes, so it's recommended to use a major version when expressing the gem dependency. e.g.

gem 'supersaas-api-client', '~> 1'

2: System Gem

You can install the SuperSaaS Ruby API Client globally by using the gem command. Open a terminal and enter the following command:

$ gem install supersaas-api-client

Configuration

The Client can be used either (1) through the singleton helper method instance, e.g.

Supersaas::Client.instance #=> <Supersaas::Client>

Or else by (2) simply creating a new client instance manually, e.g.

Supersaas::Client.new #=> <Supersaas::Client>

Initialize the SuperSaaS Client with authorization credentials:

Supersaas::Client.configure do |config|
  config.account_name = 'accnt'
  config.password = 'pwd'
end

Note, ensure that configure is called before instance or new, otherwise the client will be initialized with configuration defaults.

If the client isn't configured explicitly, it will use default ENV variables for the account name and password.

ENV['SSS_API_ACCOUNT_NAME'] = 'your-env-supersaas-account-name'
ENV['SSS_API_PASSWORD'] = 'your-env-supersaas-account-name' 
Supersaas::Client.instance.account_name #=> 'your-env-supersaas-account-name'
Supersaas::Client.instance.password #=> 'your-env-supersaas-account-name'

All configuration options can be individually set on the client.

Supersaas::Client.instance.password = 'pwd' 
Supersaas::Client.instance.verbose = true
...

Examples

The ./examples folder contains several executable Ruby scripts demonstrating how to use the API Client for common requests.

The examples will require your account name, password, and some of the examples a schedule id and/or user id and/or form id. These can be set as environment variables. e.g.

$ gem install supersaas-api-client
$ SSS_API_UID=myuserid SSS_API_SCHEDULE=myscheduleid SSS_API_ACCOUNT_NAME=myaccountname SSS_API_PASSWORD=mypassword ./examples/appointments.rb
$ SSS_API_FORM=myuserid SSS_API_ACCOUNT_NAME=myaccountname SSS_API_PASSWORD=mypassword ./examples/forms.rb 
$ SSS_API_ACCOUNT_NAME=myaccountname SSS_API_PASSWORD=mypassword ./examples/users.rb

Testing

The HTTP requests can be stubbed by configuring the client with the dry_run option, e.g.

Supersaas::Client.instance.dry_run = true

Note, stubbed requests always return an empty Hash.

The Client also provides a last_request attribute containing the Net::HTTP object from the last performed request, e.g.

Supersaas::Client.instance.last_request #=> <Net::HTTP::Get>

The headers, body, path, etc. of the last request can be inspected for assertion in tests, or for troubleshooting failed API requests.

For additional troubleshooting, the client can be configured with the verbose option, which will puts any JSON contents in the request and response, e.g.

Supersaas::Client.instance.verbose = true 

Error Handling

The API Client raises a custom exception for HTTP errors and invalid input. Rescue from Supersaas::Exception when making API requests. e.g.

begin
  Supersaas::Client.instance.users.get
rescue Supersaas::Exception => e
  # Handle error
end

Validation errors are assigned to the response model. e.g.

appointment = Supersaas::Client.instance.appointments.create(12345, {bad_field_name: ''})
appointment.errors #=> [{"status":"400","title":"Bad request: unknown attribute 'bad_field_name' for Booking."}]
