Stack Overflow

Ive namespaced this gem to API::StackOverflow so that I could use 'StackOverflow' for other namespacing purposes

This is a simple gem that utilizes HTTParty and the StackOverflow API.

gem install stack_overflow

The StackOverflow API help can be found at api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/usage

Set API Key

Be sure to set the API Key.

API::StackOverflow.API_KEY = YOUR_KEY_GOES_HERE You can get your key from StackOverflow by going here : stackapps.com/apps/register

Get all Users

API::StackOverflow.get_all_users

By default the api returns the first page of users with 30 per page. This information can be read from the results. To get additional pages or change the pagesize (0-100) you can make call like:

API::StackOverflow.get_all_users(:page => 2, :per_page => 50)
