About

urbanairship is a Ruby library for using the Airship REST API for push notifications, message center messages, email, and SMS.

Requirements

We officially support the following Ruby versions:

2.2.5
2.3.1

Newer versions should work as well.

Functionality

Version 5.0 is a major upgrade, as some features have been removed that were present in earlier versions. A more detailed list of changes can be found in the CHANGELOG.

Questions

The best place to ask questions or report a problem is our support site: http://support.airship.com/

Installation

If you have the bundler gem (if not you can get it with $ gem install bundler) add this line to your application's Gemfile:

>>> gem 'urbanairship'

And then execute:

>>> $ bundle

OR install it yourself as:

>>> gem install urbanairship

Configuration

In your app initialization, you can do something like the following:

>>> require 'urbanairship'
>>> Urbanairship.configure do |config|
>>>   config.log_path = '/path/to/your/logfile'
>>>   config.log_level = Logger::WARN
>>>   config.timeout = 60
>>> end

If you want to use a custom logger (e.g Rails.logger), you can do:

>>> require 'urbanairship'
>>> Urbanairship.configure do |config|
>>>   config.custom_logger = Rails.logger
>>>   config.log_level = Logger::WARN
>>>   config.timeout = 60
>>> end

Available Configurations

  • log_path: Allows to define the folder where the log file will be created (the default is nil).
  • log_level: Allows to define the log level and only messages at that level or higher will be printed (the default is INFO).
  • timeout: Allows to define the request timeout in seconds (the default is 5).

Usage

Once the gem has been installed you can start sending pushes! See the full documentation, api examples, as well as the Airship API Documentation for more information.

Broadcast to All Devices

>>> require 'urbanairship'
>>> UA = Urbanairship
>>> airship = UA::Client.new(key:'application_key', secret:'master_secret')
>>> p = airship.create_push
>>> p.audience = UA.all
>>> p.notification = UA.notification(alert: 'Hello')
>>> p.device_types = UA.all
>>> p.send_push

Simple Tag Push

>>> require 'urbanairship'
>>> UA = Urbanairship
>>> airship = UA::Client.new(key:'application_key', secret:'master_secret')
>>> p = airship.create_push
>>> p.audience = UA.tag('some_tag')
>>> p.notification = UA.notification(alert: 'Hello')
>>> p.device_types = UA.all
>>> p.send_push

Development

After checking out the repo, ensure you have bundler installed ($ gem install bundler) run:

>>> $ bin/setup

to install dependencies. Then, run:

>>> $ bin/console

for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

OR you can build a local gem to play with:

>>> $ gem build urbanairship.gemspec
>>> $ gem install ./urbanairship-<VERSION>.gem

Having a local build will give you better logging if you are running into issues, but be careful to make sure to use our released public gem in Production.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
