Prerequisites

Enable SSO authentication for PunchTab account

Getting Started

Authenticate using Single Sign On (SSO)

# authenticate with PunchTab
client = Punchtab::Client.new(
  :client_id  => 'your client_id',
  :access_key => 'your access_key',
  :secret_key => 'your secret_key',
  :domain     => 'www.mydomain.com',
  :user_info => {
    :first_name => 'your first_name',
    :last_name  => 'your last_name',
    :email      => 'me@mydomain.com'}
)
# if authentication is successful, you should get an access token back
puts "Access Token: #{client.access_token}"

# if authentication fails, an exception is thrown

Note: You can get all of the above values from your Punchtab developer account page.

Roadmap

  • Add tests

Contributions

Patches and Pull Requests are most welcome.

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, but do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself, so I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
