branch: master
README.md

Instapaper

Instapaper is a ruby wrapper for interacting with Instapaper's Full Developer API. Note that access to the Full API is restricted to Instapaper subscribers only.

Installation

gem install instapaper

Usage

Instapaper offers full support for all methods exposed through the Full API. Note that Instapaper does not support the request-token/authorize workflow. To obtain an access token, use the access_token method.

Configuration

Instapaper.configure do |config|
  config.consumer_key = YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY
  config.consumer_secret = YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET
  config.oauth_token = YOUR_OAUTH_TOKEN
  config.oauth_token_secret = YOUR_OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET
end

Authentication

To obtain an access token via xAuth:

Instapaper.access_token(username, password)

You can also verify credentials once you have received tokens:

Instapaper.verify_credentials

Bookmark Operations

Retrieve a list of bookmarks:

Instapaper.bookmarks

Add a new bookmark:

Instapaper.add_bookmark('http://someurl.com', :title => 'This is the title', :description => 'This is the description')

Remove a bookmark:

Instapaper.delete_bookmark(bookmark_id)

Update read progress:

Instapaper.update_read_progress(bookmark_id, 0.5)

Star/Un-star a bookmark:

Instapaper.star(bookmark_id)
Instapaper.unstar(bookmark_id)

Archive/Un-archive a bookmark:

Instapaper.archive(bookmark_id)
Instapaper.unarchive(bookmark_id)

Move a bookmark to a folder:

Instapaper.move(bookmark_id, folder_id)

Obtain the text of a bookmark:

Instapaper.text(bookmark_id)

Folder Operations

To obtain the list of folders:

Instapaper.folders

You can add by passing a name:

Instapaper.add_folder('eventmachine')

And remove folders by referencing a folder by it's id.

Instapaper.delete_folder(folder_id)

Lastly, the folders can be reordered:

Instapaper.set_order(['folder_id1:2','folder_id2:1'])

Contributing

  • 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, 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 I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
