Foursquare Rails Examples

This is a working Rails application that connects to the Foursquare API using Quimby. The application is live on Heroku at http://foursquare-rails-examples.heroku.com

Configuration

Register your application

First, you need to register your application. Be sure to set your callback url to something like {MY_APP_ROOT_URL}/session/callback (this could be http://localhost:3000/session/callback).

Then, update config/application.yml with your app_id and app_secret.

Try it!

Launch your server and that's it! You have an application that connected to the Foursquare v2 API.

Have a look at the code

Go check app/controllers/examples_controller.rb
