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:

2.6.7
2.7.2

Newer 2.x versions should work as well.

Functionality

Version 8.0 is a major upgrade, as we have changed the tested/supported versions of Ruby. 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.server = 'go.airship.eu'
  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
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).
  • server: Allow to define the Airship server you want to use ("go.airship.eu" or "go.urbanairship.com")
  • 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.device_types(['ios','android'])
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.device_types(['ios','android'])
p.send_push

Specify the Airship server used to make your requests

By default, the request will be sent to the 'go.urbanairship.com' server:

require 'urbanairship'

Urbanairship::Client.new(key:'application_key', secret:'master_secret')

You can change the server globally in the Urbanairship configuration:

require 'urbanairship'

Urbanairship.configure do |config|
  config.server = 'go.airship.eu'
end

Urbanairship::Client.new(key:'application_key', secret:'master_secret')
# request will be sent to the 'go.airship.eu' server

Finally, you can change the targeted server on a request basis:

require 'urbanairship'

Urbanairship.configure do |config|
  config.server = 'go.airship.eu'
end

Urbanairship::Client.new(key:'application_key', secret:'master_secret', server: 'go.urbanairship.com')
# The Urbanairship configuration is overridden by the client and the
# request will be sent to the 'go.urbanairship.com' server

Using Bearer Token Auth

require 'urbanairship'

UA = Urbanairship
airship = UA::Client.new(key:'application_key', token:'token')
# Then continue as you would otherwise

Note: If you include a token in your instantiation, the request will use bearer token auth. Bearer token auth is required for some endpoints, but not supported by others. Please check the Airship docs site to see where it is supported.

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.
