Fixed broken AWIS request signing code, which was resulting in authentication errors being thrown. It appears the code was using an old signing method that eventually got deprecated on 5/25/11.



Ruby Amazon Alexa web service REST API using Hpricot with configurable default options and method call options. Uses Response and Element wrapper classes for easy access to REST XML output.

Version: 0.1.0


$ gem install amazon-awis


require 'amazon/awis'

# set the default options; options will be camelized and converted to REST request parameters.
Amazon::Awis.options = {:aws_access_key_id => [your access key]}

# to generate signed requests include your secret key:
Amazon::Awis.options = {:aws_access_key_id => [your developer token], :aws_secret_key => [your secret access key]}

# alternatively,
Amazon::Awis.configure do |options|
    options[:aws_access_key_id] = [your access key]
    options[:aws_secret_key] = [you secret key]
    options[:responsegroup] = 'Rank'

#Call get_info method to get website info
res = Amazon::Awis.get_info('')

# some common response object methods        
res.is_success?   # return true if request was successful

#dynamic methods
res.rank          # return the rank of domain name that was passed
res.dataurl	      # returns the url which was queried
