* Code: http://github.com/geemus/googleajax

== DESCRIPTION:

Ruby wrapper for Google AJAX API REST interfaces(Feeds, Language and Search).

== SYNOPSIS:

  require "googleajax"

  # First, setup referer: 
  GoogleAjax.referer = [your domain name here]

  # Optionally, you can set an api_key:
  GoogleAjax.api_key = [your api key here]

=== Now you are set to go, so here are a few examples:

  # Find top 10 feeds for 'ruby'
  GoogleAjax::Feed.find('ruby')

  # Load 4 most recent entries from 'http://monki.geemus.com/feed/atom.xml'
  GoogleAjax::Feed.load('http://monki.geemus.com/feed/atom.xml')

  # Find feed for 'http://monki.geemus.com'
  GoogleAjax::Feed.lookup('http://monki.geemus.com')

  # Find the language of the string 'Ciao mondo'
  GoogleAjax::Language.detect('Ciao mondo')

  # Translate 'Hello world' to italian
  GoogleAjax::Language.translate('Hello world', 'en', 'it')

  # Find top 4 blogs for 'ruby'
  GoogleAjax::Search.blogs('ruby')

  # Find top 4 books for 'ruby'
  GoogleAjax::Search.books('ruby')

  # Find top 4 images for 'ruby'
  GoogleAjax::Search.images('ruby')

  # Find top 4 local results for 'ruby' at latitude 48.8565, longitude 2.3509
  GoogleAjax::Search.local('ruby', 48.8565, 2.3509)

  # Find top 4 news results for 'ruby'
  GoogleAjax::Search.news('ruby')

  # Find top 4 video results for 'ruby'
  GoogleAjax::Search.video('ruby')

  # Find top 4 web page results for 'Hello world'
  GoogleAjax::Search.web('Hello world')

  # Find top 10 feeds for 'ruby'
  GoogleAjax::Feed.find('ruby')



=== Results

Results from the methods are hashes, automatically converted from the response from Google.

For example:

  # Find top 4 web page results for 'Hello world'
  GoogleAjax::Search.web('Hello world')
  # => { :results=>[
  #       { :title=>"<b>Hello world</b> program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia",
  #         # ... more data ...
  #         :url=>"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hello_world_program"
  #       },
  #       # ... more results
  #     ],
  #     :cursor=>{
  #       :current_page_index=>0,
  #       # ... more data ...
  #       :estimated_result_count=>57800000
  #     }
  #   }

When possible, the result is simplified:
* Feed.find will return an array instead of {:entries => array}
* Feed.load will return the feed instead of {:feed => feed}

== REQUIREMENTS:

* JSON gem to parse responses, or rails

== INSTALL:

  sudo gem install googleajax
