BreweryDB

Gem Version Build Status Code Climate Dependency Status

A Ruby library for using the BreweryDB API.

Requirements

Tested and known to work with the following Rubies:

  • Ruby/MRI 1.9.2, 1.9.3, 2.0.0, 2.1
  • JRuby 1.7.x in 1.9 mode
  • Rubinius ~> 2.2

Installation

Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

gem 'brewery_db'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install brewery_db

Configuration

You must have a valid API key to use the BreweryDB API. If you don’t yet have one, you may request one here.

You can use the following method to configure your API key:

brewery_db = BreweryDB::Client.new do |config|
  config.api_key = API_KEY
end

Logging

Optionally, you can configure BreweryDB to use a logger for to help with request debugging.

brewery_db = BreweryDB::Client.new do |config|
  # ...
  config.logger = Rails.logger
end

Usage

Once an API key has been set, resources can be called on the client instance.

brewery_db.beers.all(abv: '5.5')
brewery_db.beers.find('vYlBZQ')
brewery_db.beers.random

brewery_db.breweries.all(established: 2006)
brewery_db.breweries.find('d1zSa7')

brewery_db.brewery('d1zSa7').beers

WebHooks

The BreweryDB API also provides webhooks, which can be used to:

keep your local data stores in sync with the main BreweryDB API. Instead of having to constantly query the API, webhooks will send you a message when something changes.

This library provides a simple abstraction over the data posted by those webhooks.

webhook = BreweryDB::WebHook.new(webhook_params_hash)

Validating a WebHook

The webhook_params_hash should contain the key, nonce, action, etc. sent as the payload of the webhook. A BreweryDB::WebHook object can validate the posted data by SHA-1 hashing your API key with the nonce value and comparing it to the key value (as per the docs).

webhook.valid?(API_KEY) # => true or false

Idiomatic Access to WebHook Parameters

The BreweryDB::WebHook object also provides an idiomatic Ruby interface to the parameters. For example, one of the parameters posted in a webhook is attributeId, which is the BreweryDB ID for a brewery, beer, etc. This parameter is exposed by an instance of BreweryDB::WebHook as #attribute_id.

Here’s the full list of parameters:

webhook.action #=> 'insert'
webhook.attribute #=> 'beer'
webhook.attribute_id #=> 'x6bRxw'
webhook.key #=> 'some-long-key-value-here'
webhook.nonce #=> 'some-long-nonce-value-here'
webhook.sub_action #=> 'brewery-insert'
webhook.sub_attribute_id #=> 'q6vJUK'
webhook.timestamp #=> '1350573527'
