OpenGraph is a very simple library for parsing Open Graph protocol information from web sites. Learn more about the protocol at:



gem install opengraph


require 'opengraph'

movie = OpenGraph.fetch('http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1217700-kick_ass/')

movie.title # => 'Kick-Ass'
movie.movie? # => true
movie.image # => 'http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/custom/00/1217700.jpg'

If you try to fetch Open Graph information for a URL that doesn't have any, the fetch method will return false.. The OpenGraph::Object that is returned is just a Hash with accessors built into it, so you can examine what properties you've retrieved like so:

movie.keys # => ['type','image','title','url']

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.
