This is a fork of Vikinggem. Bug fix and new feature for this gem should be place here.

Viking brings you easy access to the Akismet, and Defensio spam protection services, but without the need for you to use Rails. VikingGem is Ruby web framework agnostic.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'viking'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install viking


Viking.connect('akismet', api_key: '1234', blog: '')

Spam or ham ?
