icontact-api

DESCRIPTION:

This gem provides a thin wrapper around the iContact 2.0 API.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • automatically signs each request

  • handles packing and unpacking into json

  • query params can be passed as an options hash

SYNOPSIS:

Normally you will want to subclass the Icontact::Api class and define your API_KEY and API_SECRET, and optionally you may wish to hard-code a username and password for the API.

@api = MyApi.new(username, password) @api.get('/a/000000/c/000000/messages', :limit=>10, :offset=>0)

Please see the icontact developer documentation for a full listing of the supported resources and url structure.

This gem is not officially supported by iContact. Please contact the author with bug reports, feature requests, or questions about this gem.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • requires JSON gem

INSTALL:

  • sudo gem install icontact-api

USAGE

for convenience create a class like this that keeps track of your API_KEY, API_SECRET, and optionally an api username and password:

require 'icontact-api' class BetaApi < Icontact::Api

API_USERNAME='username'
API_PASSWORD='password'
API_KEY = 'YOUR_API_KEY'
API_SECRET = 'YOUR_API_SECRET'
DOMAIN = "http://app.beta.icontact.com/icp"

def initialize(username = BetaApi::API_USERNAME, password = BetaApi::API_PASSWORD)
  super(username, password)
  self.key = API_KEY
  self.secret = API_SECRET
  self.domain = DOMAIN
end

end

Then you can use it like:

@api = BetaApi.new @api.get('/a') @api.post('/a/00000/c/0000/messages', data)
