Most of the time when I want to use the Campfire API, I just want to send it a simple message. So, I created a stupid simple way to send a message to Campfire.
I've include a command line tool as well to make it really easy to use this with low-ish level system tools (i.e. cron).
gem install campfire-notifier
In ~/.campfire_notifier.yml, put your campfire subdomain, the room id (not the name) to which you want to send a message, and your API token, which you can find on your campfire user edit page.

Nothing! This baby uses gem bundler, so you shouldn't need to install any other gems.
Still, just in case:
