librarything-api

This is a Ruby wrapper for the LibraryThing API.

Accessing LibraryThing APIs

In order to use the LT Web Services API (and this library), you need to register for a developer key on librarything.com

Using the Library

The gem uses HTTParty and Nokogiri for fetching and processing responses. Both of the gems must be installed.

$ gem install httparty nokogiri librarything-api

$ irb -r rubygems
require 'librarything'
LibraryThing::DEVELOPER_KEY = 'abcdef0123456789abcdef'
strange = LibraryThing::Work.get(:name => 'Jonathan Strange')
strange['url']
# "http://www.librarything.com/work/1060"

Other LT APIs to Add

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.
