A Pardot API client written in Ruby
Ruby
Branch: master

README.rdoc

Install

Add the following to your Gemfile

gem "ruby-pardot"

Usage

Authentication

The client will authenticate before performing other API calls, but you can manually authenticate as well

client = Pardot::Client.new email, password, user_key

# will raise a Pardot::ResponseError if login fails
# will raise a Pardot::NetError if the http call fails
client.authenticate

Object Types

The available objects are:

  • emails

  • lists

  • opportunities

  • prospects

  • users

  • visitor_activities

  • visitors

  • visits

Querying Objects

developer.pardot.com/kb/api-version-3/querying-prospects

Most objects accept limit, offset, sort_by, and sord_order parameters

prospects = client.prospects.query(:assigned => false, :sort_by => "last_activity_at", :limit => 20)

prospects["total_results"] # number of prospects found

prospects["prospect"].each do |prospect|
  puts prospect["first_name"]
end

Creating, editing, and reading objects

See each individual object's API reference page for available methods

developer.pardot.com/kb/api-version-3/using-prospects

prospect = client.prospects.create("user@test.com", :first_name => "John", :last_name => "Doe")

prospect.each do |key, value|
  puts "#{key} is #{value}"
end

Emails

See each individual call's [API reference page](developer.pardot.com/kb/api-version-3/introduction-table-of-contents).

# Sample usage
@pardot.emails.read_by_id(email_id)
@pardot.emails.send_to_list(:email_template_id => template_id, 'list_ids[]' => list_id, :campaign_id => campaign_id)
@pardot.emails.send_to_prospect(prospect_id, :campaign_id => campaign_id, :email_template_id => template_id)

Output formats

client.format = "simple" # default
client.format = "mobile"
client.format = "full"

Error handling

Pardot will respond with an error message when you provide invalid parameters

begin
  prospect = client.prospects.create("user@test.com")
rescue Pardot::ResponseError => e
  # the request went through, but Pardot responded with an error, possibly because this email is already in use
end

Performing API calls across the internet is inherently unsafe, so be sure to catch the exceptions

begin
  visitor = client.visitors.query(:id_greater_than => 200)
rescue Pardot::NetError => e
  # the API request failed
  #   - socket broke before the request was completed
  #   - pi.pardot.com is under heavy load
  #   - many number of other reasons
end
