Uservoice feedback for Ruby on Rails
This adds Uservoice support to your Rails application including single sign-on.
As a gem
gem install uservoice --source http://gemcutter.org
As a Rails dependency
config.gem 'uservoice', :source => 'http://gemcutter.org'
As a Rails plugin
./script/plugin install http://github.com/iltempo/uservoice.git
Generate files for your app:
./script/generate uservoice <key> <forum> [<api_key>]
Where <key> is the Uservoice account name and <forum> the id of your main forum. Find both settings in widgets section of the admin interface of Uservoice. Your API key <api_key> can be found in the API section of the admin documentation.
Default properties are stored in a file named uservoice.yml in the config directory of your Rails application. Make it fitting to your needs. Feel free to use erb expressions.
You can override default uservoice settings in your view:
Single sign-on authenticates your users automatically against the Uservoice service. A second login is not needed any more.
Uservoice is allowing single sign-on starting from the Bronze plan. uservoice.com/signup?ref=nav
To use single sign-on with on uservoice you have to set your api_key in config/uservoice.yml. Find it on ACCOUNT.uservoice.com/admin2/docs#/legacy_api
The user properties can be set via the :sso parameter.
Parameter :guid should be unique identifier, for example the user id in your system. Uservoice recommends setting :email parameter to enable users to get updates and notifications via email. See ACCOUNT.uservoice.com/admin2/docs#/sso for a list of parameters available.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
