urbanairship is a Ruby library for using the Urban Airship web service API for push notifications and rich app pages.
As of Version 3.0, a Ruby version >= 2.0 must be used.
Version 3.0 is a major upgrade and backwards incompatible with earlier versions. This BETA release focuses on support for the new version 3 push API. There is also a major reorganization of the codebase.
Note: the BETA release only supports UA's
/schedules/ endpoints. Expanded support for UA's other endpoints will be in the forthcoming release.
To encourage the use of our SDK, which takes care of proper channel registration, support for device token registration will be removed. Support for v1 endpoints will also be removed and transitioned to their v3 equivalents where possible.
If you have the
bundler gem (if not you can get it with
$ gem install bundler) add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
OR install it yourself as:
$ gem install urbanairship
Once the gem has been installed you can start sending pushes! See http://docs.urbanairship.com/topic-guides/api-examples.html for more examples.

After checking out the repo, ensure you have
bundler installed (
$ gem install bundler) run
to install dependencies. Then, run
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.
