After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies.

You can run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

Running the tests

  • git clone git://github.com/ebsco/edsapi-ruby && cd edsapi-ruby
  • bundle
  • Create a .env.test file
    • It should look like the following:
EDS_PROFILE=profile_name
EDS_GUEST=n
EDS_USER=your_user_id
EDS_PASS=secret
EDS_AUTH=ip
EDS_ORG=your_institution
  • rake test

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.
