go-akismet

GoDoc

go-akismet is a Go client library for accessing the Akismet API (v1.1).

Usage

import "github.com/adtac/go-akismet/akismet"

Here's an example if you want to check whether a particular comment is spam or not using the akismet.Check method:

akismetKey := "abcdef012345"
isSpam, err := akismet.Check(akismet.Comment{
	Blog: "https://example.com",                 // required
	UserIP: "8.8.8.8",                           // required
	UserAgent: "...",                            // required
	CommentType: "comment",
	CommentAuthor: "Billie Joe",
	CommentAuthorEmail: "billie@example.com",
	CommentContent: "Something's on my mind",
}, akismetKey)

if err != nil {
	// There was some issue with the API request. Most probable cause is
	// missing required fields.
}

You can also submit false positives (comments that were wrongly marked as spam) with the akismet.SubmitHam method. Or you can submit false negatives (comments that should be marked as spam, but weren't) with the akismet.SubmitSpam method. Both methods have the same method signature as the akismet.Check function: an akismet.Comment structure as the first argument followed by your API key.

Development

Contributing

Patches welcome! This library was primarily developed for use in Commento, so priority of features and bug fixes from me will probably follow requirements there.

Testing

To run tests, you first need to set up your Akismet API key in the AKISMET_KEY environment variable. Following this, run go test to automatically execute all tests. Note that this will make real HTTP requests to the Akismet API server.

$ export AKISMET_KEY=abcdef012345
$ go test
