JAPI

build status Gem Version YARD docs codecov.io inch.io

A simple ruby interface for the jservice.io API

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'japi'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install japi

Usage

clue = JAPI::Trebek.random.first # ask trebek for a random question!
puts clue.category.title # THE SOLAR SYSTEM
puts clue.question # Only 1 of 9 planets not named for a Greek or Roman mythological figure

answer = gets.chomp
if answer == clue.answer
  puts "The Earth! Correct!"
  puts "Good answer! Thats worth #{clue.value} dollars!"
else
  puts "Too bad!"
end

You can host your own jservice.io, and configure the gem to use arbitrary endpoints.

Example Configuration

require 'japi'

JAPI.configuration do |config|
 config.jservice_url = "http://my-selfhosted-jservice.com"
end

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
