foursquare

A simple Ruby Gem wrapper for the Foursquare API. With OAuth authentication.

install

gem install foursquare

example

require 'rubygems'
require 'foursquare'

oauth_key = 'your_key'
oauth_secret = 'your_secret'

oauth = Foursquare::OAuth.new(oauth_key, oauth_secret)

request_token = oauth.request_token.token
request_secret = oauth.request_token.secret

# redirecting user to foursquare to authorize
oauth.request_token.authorize_url

# foursquare redirects back to your callback url, passing the verifier in the url params

access_token, access_secret = oauth.authorize_from_request(request_token, request_secret, verifier)

# save the user's access token and secret

oauth = Foursquare::OAuth.new(oauth_key, oauth_secret)
oauth.authorize_from_access(access_token, access_secret)
foursquare = Foursquare::Base.new(oauth)
