= ActsAsAmazonProduct This "acts_as" module makes it extremely simple to add Amazon integration to an existing model. == Setup This code does not require changing any current database tables. It only requires adding one migration for a single new table used to cache responses from Amazon. Run the following to create the migration: script/generate acts_as_amazon_product_migration == Using acts_as_amazon_product Add the "acts_as" line to your model. Only :access_key is required. The :asin and :name assignments override what attributes in your class should be used for a direct lookup (item_looup) or general search (item_search). If no value is assigned to :asin then a general search is made and the first item (sorted by salesrank) is assigned (this functionality will likely change). require 'acts_as_amazon_product' class Book < ActiveRecord::Base acts_as_amazon_product :asin => 'isbn', :name => 'title', :access_key => '0123456', :associate_tag => 'assoc-20' end You can now access the Amazon data in your views like so (see): @book = Book.new(:title => 'Getting Things Done') @book.amazon.isbn @book.amazon.title @book.amazon.author @book.amazon.small_image_url or @book.amazon.get('itemattributes/foobar') == Unit tests There are tests you can run in the [gem]/test directory. Just create a test/config.yml from the example and run "Rake test" from the [gem] directory. = Credits acts_as_amazon_product was created by Scott Nedderman and Chris Beck from netphase.com We'd love to here how you like it.
