Pocket

A curl gem that doesn't suck.

Installation

In your Gemfile, add this line:

gem "pocket"

Options & Defaults

Here are the possible options. Whatever you pass in will merge with and overwrite these defaults. The :headers options will merge as well, so if you don't want those default headers, you'll need to pass in a :headers option that overwrites (e.g. 'Content-Type') with nil.

# defaults
_options = {
  :method     => :get,
  :username   => nil,
  :password   => nil,
  :use_ssl    => false,
  :data       => nil,
  :headers    => {
    "Content-Type"  => "application/json",
    "Accept"        => "application/json",
  }
}
