Pingr is a Ruby library for accessing the Pingdom API. It provides a thorfile so you can execute its actions from the command line.
Install the soap4r and thor gems.
You will need to create a “creds.yml” file in the pingr directory. It should look like:
:username: email@example.com :password: YourPingdomPassword :api_key: 13c9a18ee27cafebabe4a72dead3beef
Obviously replace your email/login, password, and Pingdom API keys appropriately.
Use thor to call the various actions. Try
thor -T to see the available items from within the pingr directory. For example:
to get a list of your Pingdom checks.
