Access your Google Reader account from Ruby:
require "google_reader" # Get an instance of a client like this # This hits the network to get a token immediately client = GoogleReader::Client.authenticate(USERNAME, PASSWORD) # Save the token to the database, somehow client.token # Alternatively, if you save the token, you can authenticate using # the token, which doesn't hit the network client = GoogleReader::Client.authenticate(TOKEN) # Then, call any of these client.unread_items client.read_items client.broadcast_items client.body_link_used_items client.item_link_used_items client.clicked_through_items client.emailed_items client.starred_items # To receive an Array of Atom Entries: item = client.items.unread p item.title p item.categories p item.id p item.published_at p item.updated_at p item.href p item.author_unknown? p item.author p item.source p item.liking_users p item.summary # You may also get feed objects back, which then allow you to query "since" a time feed = client.read_feed cutoff_at = feed.updated_at sleep 30 client.read_feed(:since => cutoff_at) # Only new items since that cutoff time
google_reader’s specifications are certified to run on MRI 1.9.2, MRI 1.8.7, REE 1.8.7-2011-03, Rubinius head (2011/05/03) and JRuby 1.6.0 (in 1.8 mode).
