This gem provides a thin wrapper around the iContact 2.0 API.
automatically signs each request
handles packing and unpacking into json
query params can be passed as an options hash
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.
requires JSON gem
sudo gem install icontact-api
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
Then you can use it like:
@api = BetaApi.new @api.get('/a') @api.post('/a/00000/c/0000/messages', data)
