Contact::Rails helps you to import a list of Google, Yahoo Windows Live contacts through delegated authentication. The plugin adds actions for each service (import_google_contacts fe) that take care of redirecting your users to their accounts for login purpose and then to a template called ‘import’ with the contacts list as @contacts.
Contact::Rails is built in front of a contacts gem fork created by Hugo Barauna, with some enhancements.
script/plugin install git://github.com/dcrec1/contacts_rails.git
class HomeController < ApplicationController do include Contacts::Imports end
Then configure config/contacts.yml. You can find a demo file in vendor/plugins/contacts_rails/lib/contacts.yml.
Now you are ready to define routes like these:
map.import_google '/home/import/google', :controller => "home", :action => 'import_google_contacts' map.import_live '/home/import/live', :controller => "home", :action => 'import_live_contacts' map.import_yahoo '/home/import/yahoo', :controller => "home", :action => 'import_yahoo_contacts' map.import_csv '/home/import/csv', :controller => "home", :action => 'import_csv_contacts'
Don’t forget now to create the ‘import’ template.
