Ruby client library for JDoodle API.

⬇ Installing

Bundler (recommended)

If you are using Bundler, add the following line to your Gemfile:

gem "jdoodle"


If you are not using Bundler, use the gem install command:

$ gem install jdoodle

πŸ•Ή Usage

First you need to create an account on JDoodle's website. After that you must pick a plan. That will give you a client ID and a client secret. You will need that to make requests. Now you can go back to your Ruby project, require JDoodle and instantiate a client:

# Requiring JDoodle client library
require "jdoodle"

# Instantiating a client
jdoodle =
  client_id: "CLIENT_ID_HERE",
  client_secret: "CLIENT_SECRET_HERE"


To check how many credits the client has spent today, use Client#credit_spent:

jdoodle.credit_spent # => 4

Executing Snippets

To execute a snippet of code, use Client#execute:

# If your code takes up more than one line, it is
# recommended to use the squiggly heredoc syntax.
jdoodle.execute :c do
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
      printf("Hello, World!");
      return 0;

# If not, go for the shorter way.
jdoodle.execute :ruby do
  'puts "Hello, World!"'

# Or
jdoodle.execute(:ruby) { 'puts "Hello, World!"' }

This will instantiate an ExecutionResponse object, which has four read-only attributes: cpu_time, memory, output and status_code.

response = jdoodle.execute :python3 do
  'print("Hello, World!")'

p response.cpu_time # => "0.01"
p response.memory # => "5280"
p response.output # => "Hello, World!\n"
p response.status_code # => 200

πŸ“¦ Dependencies


JDoodle.rb does not rely on any external dependencies. It uses Ruby's Net::HTTP to handle requests.
