Unofficial wrapper for the API

This wrapper gives access to the currently available functions of the API. It lacks most of the interesting features but has every API-call mapped to a method.

General datastructure is a Mash, which provides easy attribute access.


Currently this wrapper is not available as a gem at RubyGems. However you can checkout the source with Bundler and get the latest version (or any specified one) build automatically.


quote =

# => "pwaldhauer"

# => "It's Like That Because It Has Always Been Like That"

At this point the API provides neither authentication, nor write access.


  • moar methods to play with! (maybe some cool stats stuff)
  • moar tests!
  • CLI for easier data-mining :D
  • tidy everything up and upload to RubyGems
  • input validations, especially for numeric values and URIs

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bugfix.
  • Add some basic 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 the version in a separate commit, that I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for expressiveness of the new feature.
