Ruby wrapper around Highrise API.

branch: master

Highrise (2.0.0)

What is it?

This gem provides a set of classes to access information on Highrise via the published API:

Account, Comment, Company, Deal, Email, Group, Case, Membership, Note, Person, Subject, Tag, Task, User. 

All these classes are inherited from ActiveResouce::Base. Refer to the ActiveResouce documentation for more information.


gem install highrise

Dependencies (see the Rakefile or run rake check_dependencies)


I'm on and here're some metrics

Configure your key

require 'rubygems'
require 'highrise' = ''
Highrise::Base.user = 'api-auth-token'

and, if you want caching:

Highrise::Base.connection.cache_store= <your normal ActiveSupport::Caching options>

If you are using this in a Rails application, putting this code in a config/initializers/highrise.rb file is recommended. See config_initializers_highrise.rb in the examples/ directory.


@tags = Highrise::Tag.find(:all)

@people = Highrise::Person.find_all_across_pages(:params => {:tag_id => 12345})

Special Thanks

Rails Envy Podcast Episode #77 for mentioning How to Cache Anything With ActiveSupport on the very day I started writing the cache code. Thank you, Rein for writing an excellent tutorial and posting your source on GitHub.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
