Gowalla

Ruby wrapper for (most) of the (unreleased) Gowalla API.

Note: The Gowalla API is unannounced. This wrapper consumes what I've been able to sniff out using Charles Proxy and my iPhone.

Installation

sudo gem install gowalla

Usage

TODO:

  • Create spots
  • Accept/reject friendship
  • Drop/pickup items

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
