DESCRIPTION:

A Ruby API for http://bit.ly

http://code.google.com/p/bitly-api/wiki/ApiDocumentation

NOTE:

BitlyOAuth supports version 3 of the API as well as OAuth authenticate for user access.

To use, you will need a client id and client secret. Get yours at http://bitly.com/a/account.

client = BitlyOAuth::Client.new(client_id, client_secret)

With a BitlyOAuth::Client you have access to the following API endpoints: shorten, expand, lookup, info, clicks, clicks_by_minute, clicks_by_day, countries, referrers, referring_domains, validate, bitly_pro_domain See http://bit.ly/apidocs for details.

INSTALLATION:

gem install bitly-oauth

USAGE:

Please see the Bit.ly API documentation http://bit.ly/apidocs for details on the V3 API.

You can initialize a client through the following shortcut as well:

client = BitlyOAuth.new("client id", "client secret")
client.set_access_token_from_token('token')

You can then use that client to shorten or expand urls or return more information or statistics as so:

client.shorten('http://www.google.com')
client.shorten('http://www.google.com', :history => 1) # adds the url to the api user's history

client.expand('wQaT') || client.expand('http://bit.ly/wQaT')
client.info('wQaT')   || client.info('http://bit.ly/wQaT')
client.stats('wQaT')  || client.stats('http://bit.ly/wQaT')

Each can be used in all the methods described in the API docs, the shorten function, for example, takes a url or an array of urls.

Then functions shorten, expand, info, and stats return a BitlyOAuth::Url object (or an array of BitlyOAuth::Url objects if you supplied an array as the input). You can then get all the information required from that object.

url = client.shorten('http://www.google.com') #=> BitlyOAuth::Url

url.clicks_by_day    #=> an array of ``BitlyOAuth::Day``s
url.countries        #=> an array of ``BitlyOAuth::Country``s
url.referrers        #=> an array of ``BitlyOAuth::Referrer``s
url.clicks_by_minute #=> an array of 60 integers representing click counts over the last 60 minutes
url.created_by       #=> string  / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/info
url.global_clicks    #=> integer / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/clicks
url.global_hash      #=> string  / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/info
url.long_url         #=> string  / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/expand
url.new_hash?        #=> boolean / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/shorten
url.short_url        #=> string  / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/shorten
url.title            #=> string  / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/info
url.user_clicks      #=> integer / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/clicks
url.user_hash        #=> string  / http://bit.ly/apidocs#/v3/expand
