Ruby + Amazon Advertising == Car RAmazon_Advertising - Say Car RAmazon_Advertising!

Ruh roh' Rorge it's an object oriented approach to Amazon's overly complicated product api that has a new name every 2 weeks.

Complete with the ability to use nokogiri selectors for results

Currently only supports product search and retrieval. Requests are signed properly. More soon!

Ramazon::Configuration.access_key = "Your Access Key"
Ramazon::Configuration.secret_key = "Your Secret Key"

@products = Ramazon::Product.find(:item_id => "B000NU2CY4", :response_group => "Medium")

#you can also use a nokogiri search string to get elements that don't have built-in accessors
@products[0].get("ItemAttributes Actor").collect{|a| a.content}

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • 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.
