DESCRIPTION:

Custodian is a Ruby gem for accessing the Guardian's Open Platform API (www.guardian.co.uk/open-platform)

SYNOPSIS:

require 'rubygems'
require 'custodian'

Custodian.api_key = "f00" # your api key here
Custodian.proxy_addr = "proxy.example.com" # optional
Custodian.proxy_port = 1234 # optional

articles = Custodian::Article.find(:all, {:q => "Obama"}) # find all articles (limited to 10 by default) that match query "Obama"
article = Custodian::Article.find(344089365) # recover an individual article by ID
count = Custodian::Article.count({:q => "Obama"}) # Count the total number of results available for a valid query

tags = Custodian::Tag.find(:all, "UK") # find all keywords (limited to 10 by default) that match query "UK"
count = Custodian::Article.count({:q => "Obama"}) # Count the total number of keyword results available for a valid query

The conditions hash is a key-value pair hash of parameters that match the Open Platform's query-string options. For more information, see the API Explorer:
