PinboardApi Build Status Code Climate

Description

A Ruby API client for Pinboard.in, the bookmarking website for introverted people in a hurry.

This client aims to cover all of the Pinboard API v1.

Requirements

  • You must have a paid Pinboard account to use the API. It is a great service and you can signup here if you don't already have an account.
  • Currently tested on the following Ruby versions:
    • 1.9.2
    • 1.9.3
    • JRuby (1.9 mode)

Note: Specs are currently passing on Rubinius with RBXOPT=-X19 on my local machine but there is a failing spec on Travis CI. I will update the README with official support for Rubinus once everything runs smoothly on Travis.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "pinboard_api"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install pinboard_api

Getting Started

You will need to set your username and password for the Pinboard service:

PinboardApi.username = "phlipper"
PinboardApi.password = "[REDACTED]"

Alternately, you may use the new auth_token method:

PinboardApi.auth_token = "[REDACTED]"

You may also set the SSL options which will be passed through to Faraday:

PinboardApi.ssl_options = { ca_file: "/opt/local/share/curl/curl-ca-bundle.crt" }

Usage

The PinboardApi namespace implements the 3 primary object types: Post, Tag, and User.

Post

  • posts/update - Check to see when a user last posted an item.
PinboardApi::Post.last_update
# => 2012-07-07 04:18:28 UTC
attributes = { url: "http://phlippers.net/pinboard_api", description: "A Ruby client for the Pinboard.in API", tags: %[ruby awesomesauce] }

post = PinboardApi::Post.new(attributes)
post.save
# => #<PinboardApi::Post:0x007fb42d905a68 @description="A Ruby client for the Pinboard.in API", @extended=nil, @hash=nil, @meta=nil, @url="http://phlippers.net/pinboard_api", @tags="ruby awesomesauce", @time=2012-07-13 23:03:34 -0700>

post = PinboardApi::Post.new
post.url = attributes[:url]
post.description = attributes[:description]
post.save

PinboardApi::Post.create(attributes)
