Pairdata

NOTE: This gem is in alpha. Pairdata is a wrapper for the USPTO's Pair Bulk Data public API https://pairbulkdata.uspto.gov/

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'pairdata'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install pairdata

Usage

Create a pd object, and go to town.

client = Pairdata::Client.new()
res = client.pair_sync(searchText: '12432343')
puts res.appStatus
puts res.patentTitle

The only required field is searchText, which defaults to searching qf:applId

Search something else by adding a searchText and qf of your own

the result is a Pairdata::Result object.
full hash is res.response
number of responses is res.numFound
