Metaforce travis-ci

Metaforce is a Ruby gem for interacting with the Salesforce Metadata API. The goal of this project is to make the Migration Tool obsolete, favoring Rake over Ant.

Documentation

Installation

gem install metaforce

Usage

client = Metaforce::Metadata::Client.new :username => 'username',
    :password => 'password',
    :security_token => 'security token')

# Describe the metadata on the organization
client.metadata_objects
# => [{ :child_xml_names => "CustomLabel", :directory_name => "labels" ... }]

# List all custom objects
client.list(:custom_object)
# => [{ :created_by_id => "005U0000000EGpcIAG", :created_by_name => "Eric Holmes", ... }]

# Deploy metadata to the organization
deployment = client.deploy(File.expand_path('path/to/src'))
# => #<Metaforce::Transaction:0x00000102779bf8 @id="04sU0000000WNWoIAO" @type=:deploy> 

# Get the result
deployment.result
# => { :id => "04sU0000000WNWoIAO", :messages => [{ :changed => true ... :success => true }

# Retrieve the metadata components specified in package.xml and unzip to the "retrieved" directory
client.retrieve(File.expand_path('path/to/package.xml')).to('retrieved')

# Create a Visualforce page
client.create_apex_page(:full_name => 'TestPage', :label => 'TestPage')

# Update a Visualforce page
client.update_apex_page('OldName', :full_name => 'NewName')

# Delete a Visualforce page
client.delete_apex_page('TestPage')

Roadmap

This gem is far from being feature complete. Here's a list of things that still need to be done.

  • Implement command line utility that can watch the directory and deploy when a file changes.
  • Implement some helper methods for diffing metadata.
  • Ability to deploy directly from a git repository.
  • And some other stuff that I haven't quite thought of yet...

Contributing

If you'd like to contribute code, please fork the repository and implement your feature on a new branch, then send me a pull request with a detailed description. Please provide applicable rspec specs.
