Getting Started

To start using this API, you only have to do the typical Rails things:

  • Install Ruby version 2.2.2 (using RVM or RBenv or whatever).

  • Clone the repo and do the bundle install thing:

user@computer:~$ git clone
user@computer:~$ cd grape_example_app
user@computer:/grape_example_app$ bundle install
user@computer:/grape_example_app$ rake db:setup
  • When all this finish, you're ready to launch the app!
user@computer:/grape_example_app$ rails s

NOTE: the seed.rb file has an ApiKey example token for testing the API, which is 18dfef7acf97765b54abecdf86a25bba, but on ApiKey.create() method it assigns other random access_token. If you want to use the example token for testing purpose, update via console the attribute access_token of the ApiKey to 18dfef7acf97765b54abecdf86a25bba, like this:

user@computer:/grape_example_app$ rails console
Loading development environment (Rails 4.2.4)
>> a = ApiKey.first
  ApiKey Load (0.3ms)  SELECT  `api_keys`.* FROM `api_keys`  ORDER BY `api_keys`.`id` ASC LIMIT 1
=> #<ApiKey id: 2, access_token: "k93eeqa34f9774rko4abecdf86a2nckm", expires_at: "2043-03-12 21:03:46", user_id: 3, active: nil, created_at: "2015-10-26 21:03:46", updated_at: "2015-10-26 21:05:03">
>> a.update_attribute(:access_token, "18dfef7acf97765b54abecdf86a25bba")
