Scrapes woot.com sites


gem install woot --source http://gemcutter.org


Simply call Woot.new and optionally specify the woot subdomain (e.g. www, shirt, kids, wine, etc). Defaults to www.

woot = Woot.new
puts woot.title
puts woot.price

woot = Woot.new(:shirt)
puts woot.title

You can also receive live Woot updates using Twitter's Streaming API (See apiwiki.twitter.com/Streaming-API-Documentation). Simply call Woot.stream with your Twitter username, password, and a block.

Woot.stream('your-twitter-username', 'your-twitter-password') do |woot|
  puts "#{woot.subdomain}: #{woot.title}"

Call Woot.stop to stop streaming.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but

    bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
