The Ruby API Client for LocomotiveCMS V3.

Table of Contents

Installation

gem install locomotivecms_coal

Usage

First, load the gem:

require 'locomotive/coal'

Authentication

client = Locomotive::Coal::Client.new('http://www.myengine.dev', { email: <EMAIL>, api_key: <API KEY> })

You can get the version of the remote running Engine by calling the following method:

client.engine_version

Note: Coal supports Engine version ~> 3.0.x. However, if you do need to request an Engine running a 2.5.x version, use following code instead:

client = Locomotive::Coal::ClientV2.new('http://www.myengine.dev', { email: <EMAIL>, api_key: <API KEY> })

We do not garantee that all the API resources will work with the V2 Client but PRs are accepted of course.

Resources

MyAccount

Get the name of the logged in account

my_account = client.my_account.get
puts my_account.name + " / " + my_account.email

If not logged in, then it's possible to create your account

client = Locomotive::Coal::Client.new('http://www.myengine.dev')
client.my_account.create(name: 'John Doe', email: 'john@doe.net', password: 'easyone', password_confirmation: 'easyone')

Update my account

client.my_account.update(name: 'Jane Doe')

Sites

Get all my sites

my_sites = client.sites.all
puts "I've got #{my_sites.size}"

Create a new site

my_site = client.sites.create(name: 'Acme', handle: 'acme', locales: ['en'], timezone: 'UTC')

Destroy a site

my_site = client.sites.destroy(my_site._id)

Pages

Note: We first need to log in to the site. It can be done by calling the scope_by method of the client instance.

site = client.sites.by_handle('acme')
site_client = client.scope_by(site)

Or, in a shorter way:

site_client = client.scope_by('acme')

For the V2 Client, that would be this instead:

site = client.sites.by_subdomain('acme')

Get the list of pages in English

pages = site_client.pages.all(:en)

Get only the id/fullpath attributes

pages = site_client.pages.fullpaths(:en)

It is required when we need the id of an existing page according to its fullpath.

Create a page

page = site_client.pages.create(title: 'About us', slug: 'about-us', parent: 'index', template: 'Locomotive rocks!')

Update a page in French

site_client.pages.update(page._id, { template: 'Locomotive est trop fort!!!' }, :fr)

Destroy a page

site_client.pages.destroy(page._id)

Content Types

Get a content type by its slug

Note: We first need to log in to the site the content type belongs to. It can be done by calling the scope_by method of the client instance.

site = client.sites.by_subdomain('acme')
site_client = client.scope_by(site)

content_type = site_client.contents.projects

Content Entries

Get the first 10 entries filtered by a property (published)

articles = site_client.contents.articles.all({ published: true })

Loop over all the content entries

page = 1
while page do
  articles = site_client.contents.articles.all({ published: true }, page: page)
  articles.each { |article| puts article.title }
  page = articles._next_page
end

Note: You can also use the following syntax

content_type = site_client.contents.projects
articles = site_client.content_entries(content_type).all

Create a content entry

first_article = site_client.contents.articles.create(title: 'Hello world')

Update a content entry

article = site_client.contents.articles.all.first
site_client.contents.articles.update(article._id, { title: 'Hello world'})

Update a content entry in a different locale

# create the article in the default locale
article = site_client.contents.articles.create(title: 'Hello world')

# then update the title in another locale
site_client.contents.articles.update(article._id, { title: 'Bonjour le monde'}, :fr)

Destroy a content entry

site_client.contents.articles.destroy(article._id)

Snippets

Get the list of snippets

snippets = site_client.snippets.all

To get the snippets in the FR locale:

snippets_in_french = site_client.snippets.all('fr')

Create a snippet

snippet = site_client.snippets.create(name: 'Header', slug: 'header', template: 'Locomotive rocks!')

# create a snippet in different locales

snippet = site_client.snippets.create(name: 'Header', slug: 'header', template: { en: 'Locomotive rocks!', fr: 'Locomotive déchire !' })

Update a snippet

site_client.snippets.update('header', template: 'Locomotive rocks!!!')

Destroy a snippet

site_client.snippets.destroy('header')

Sections

Get the list of sections

sections = site_client.sections.all

Create a section

snippet = site_client.sections.create(name: 'Header', slug: 'header', template: 'Locomotive rocks!', settings: [{ id: 'title', type: 'string' }])

Update a section

site_client.sections.update('header', template: 'Locomotive rocks!!!')

Destroy a section

site_client.sections.destroy('header')

Theme assets

Get the list of theme assets

assets = site_client.theme_assets.all

Create a theme asset

asset = site_client.theme_assets.create(source: Locomotive::Coal::UploadIO.new('<local path of my image>'), folder: 'images/header')

Update a theme asset

site_client.theme_assets.update(asset._id, source: Locomotive::Coal::UploadIO.new('<local path of my new image>'))

Destroy a theme asset

site_client.theme_assets.destroy(asset._id)

Content assets

Get the list of content assets

assets = site_client.content_assets.all

Create a content asset

asset = site_client.content_assets.create(source: Locomotive::Coal::UploadIO.new('<local path of my image>'))

Update a content asset

site_client.content_assets.update(asset._id, source: Locomotive::Coal::UploadIO.new('<local path of my new image>'))

Destroy a content asset

site_client.content_assets.destroy(asset._id)

Translations

Get the list of translations

translations = site_client.translations.all

Create a translation

translation = site_client.translations.create(key: 'hello_world', values: { en: 'Hello world!', fr: 'Bonjour monde' })

Update a translation

site_client.translations.update(translation._id, values: { en: 'Hello world!!!', fr: 'Bonjour monde !!!'} ))

Destroy a translation

site_client.translations.destroy(translation._id)

Memberships

Get the list of memberships

memberships = site_client.memberships.all

Create a membership

membership = site_client.memberships.create(role: 'author', account_email: 'nic@example.com')

Update a membership

site_client.memberships.update(account_email: 'nic@example.com', role: 'admin')

Destroy a membership

site_client.memberships.destroy(membership._id)

What is missing?

We only implemented a few resources (my_account, sites, content types, memberships and content entries) and for some of them, not all the actions have been implemented.

Check the issues section of the repository to see what is missing.
