DESCRIPTION:

Generates a classes (or class like things) that can translate currency values in a specific currency to a number of other currencies.

Partially sponsored by the kind folks at Intercity (www.intercity.co.nz).

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • No tests yet :-(

  • Generates classes (or class like things) for Ruby and Javascript

  • Can support addition languages through custom formatters

  • Supports a currency xml feed from ECB by default, but can support custom exchange rate sources through custom Source classes.

SYNOPSIS:

Generate a Ruby class for converting NZD amounts to other currencies, using the default ECB source.

generate_exchange_rates -c nzd -f ruby

This results in a file called “nzd_exchange_rates.rb” being created in the current working dir.

Generate a Javascript library for converting USD amounts to other currencies, using the default ECB source.

generate_exchange_rates -c usd -f javascript

This results in a file called “usd_exchange_rates.js” being created in the current working dir.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Ruby :-)

  • Extlib Gem

  • Money Gem

  • Patron Gem

  • Nokogiri Gem

INSTALL:
