devRant-crystal

A crystal wrapper for devRant API

Heavily inspired(and in a way ported) from danillouz/devrant

I pretty much copied everything from danillouz/devrant

Installation

Add this to your application's shard.yml:

dependencies:
  devRant-crystal:
    github: iostreamer-X/devRant-crystal

Usage

require "devRant-crystal"
DevRant.method

Each method also has an async verion, which has 'Async' appended to the method name.

DevRant.methodAsync do |arg|
  puts arg
end

Methods

After requiring the module, the following methods can be used:

METHOD ARGUMENTS RETURNS DESCRIPTION
