A Ruby wrapper for the Bing API
Branch: master


About Binged

A Ruby wrapper for the Bing API. DSL inspired by jnunemaker's Twitter Gem Search API wrapper.


[sudo] gem install binged

Get Your Bing API key

To use binged, you will require a Bing API key. Create one at:


Instantiate a client

binged = => 'binged')

Ruby on Rails

Binged allows for configuration to be done once using a configure block. To use binged in your Ruby on Rails project, configure it globally in an initializer.

# config/initializers/binged.rb
Binged.configure do |config|
  config.api_key = 'api_key'

# Client initialization
binged =            

Web Search Example

# Find 30 results for ruby from site
web_search =
web_search.containing('ruby').from_site('').per_page(30).each {|result| pp result }

Image Search Example

# Find all portrait Matz images with a wide aspect ratio
image_search =
image_search.containing('Yukihiro Matsumoto').portrait.safe_search(:strict).wide.each {|image| pp image}

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.
