Zoho Invoice

Build Status Coverage Status

Need to interact with the Zoho Invoice API? The zoho_invoice gem has your back.

Until the gem reaches 1.0, the interface for interacting with the gem could change. On top of that the gem does not support the entire API just yet. Just the minimum number of domain objects to actually create customers and invoices. This will change over time.

Status

This README covers Zoho's old Invoice API v2. Work has started on integrating version three of the API and that can be found on the version_three branch.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'zoho_invoice'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install zoho_invoice

Configuration

The Zoho Invoice API service requires that you generate an auth token ahead of time using the API, just once. Fortunately, the gem can handle that in console for you, all you need is your username and password. Then you can save the authtoken in your project based on however you do your configuration.

homebase $ irb
> require 'zoho_invoice'
 => true
> result = ZohoInvoice::AuthToken.generate_authtoken('dude@example.com', 'thisismysweetpassword')
 => #<struct ZohoInvoice::AuthToken::AuthTokenResult authtoken="blahblahblahnumbersnstuff", cause=nil>
> result.success?
 => true
> result.authtoken
 => "blahblahblahnumbersnstuff"

Client Setup

One of the great things about zoho_invoice is the ability for clients to inherit from a global config and override it if need be.

homebase $ irb
> require 'zoho_invoice'
 => true
> ZohoInvoice.authtoken = 'first_authtoken'
 => "first_authtoken"
> ZohoInvoice.apikey = 'first_apikey'
 => "first_apikey"
> client = ZohoInvoice::Client.new
 => #<ZohoInvoice::Client:0x007f9e6cf274b8 @authtoken="first_authtoken", @scope="invoiceapi", @apikey="first_apikey", @client_options={:url=>"https://invoice.zoho.com"}>
> another_client = ZohoInvoice::Client.new(:authtoken => "override_authtoken")
 => #<ZohoInvoice::Client:0x007f9e6cf395a0 @authtoken="override_authtoken", @scope="invoiceapi", @apikey="first_apikey", @client_options={:url=>"https://invoice.zoho.com"}>

Usage

require 'zoho_invoice'

client = ZohoInvoice::Client.new(:authtoken => 'my authtoken', :apikey => 'my apikey')

invoice = ZohoInvoice::Invoice.new(client, :customer_id => 'asdf')
invoice.save

If you're so inclined, you can scope the resources through the client.

require 'zoho_invoice'

client = ZohoInvoice::Client.new(:authtoken => 'my authtoken', :apikey => 'my apikey')
invoice = client.invoices.new(:customer_id => 'asdf')
invoice.save
