Usage

require "helpful"

# Then we instantiate a client (as shown below)

Build a client

Using this api without authentication gives an error

Basic authentication
auth = { :username => 'pksunkara', :password => 'password' }

client = Helpful::Client.new(auth, client_options)
Oauth access token
client = Helpful::Client.new('1a2b3', client_options)
Oauth client secret
auth = { :client_id => '09a8b7', :client_secret => '1a2b3' }

client = Helpful::Client.new(auth, client_options)

Client Options

The following options are available while instantiating a client:

  • base: Base url for the api
  • api_version: Default version of the api (to be used in url)
  • user_agent: Default user-agent for all requests
  • headers: Default headers for all requests
  • request_type: Default format of the request body

Response information

All the callbacks provided to an api call will receive the response as shown below

response = client.klass('args').method('args', method_options)

response.code
# >>> 200

response.headers
# >>> {'x-server' => 'apache'}
JSON response

When the response sent by server is json, it is decoded into a hash

response.body
# >>> {'user' => 'pksunkara'}

Method Options

The following options are available while calling a method of an api:

  • api_version: Version of the api (to be used in url)
  • headers: Headers for the request
  • query: Query parameters for the url
  • body: Body of the request
  • request_type: Format of the request body

Request body information

Set request_type in options to modify the body accordingly

RAW request

When the value is set to raw, don't modify the body at all.

body = 'username=pksunkara'
# >>> 'username=pksunkara'
JSON request

When the value is set to json, JSON encode the body.

body = {'user' => 'pksunkara'}
# >>> '{"user": "pksunkara"}'
