Constructor Details

#initialize(options = {}) ⇒ Api

With no options, the default is to use the default site_id and the default auth_token configured on the Api class.

ebay = Ebay::Api.new

However, another user's auth_token can be used and the site can be selected at the time of creation. Ex: Canada(Site 2) with another user's auth token.

ebay = Ebay::Api.new(:site_id => 2, :auth_token => 'TEST')

  @auth_token = options[:auth_token] || self.class.auth_token
  @site_id = options[:site_id] || self.class.site_id
end

Class Method Details

.configure {|_self| ... } ⇒ Object

Simply yields the Ebay::Api class itself. This makes configuration a bit nicer looking:

Ebay::Api.configure do |ebay|
  ebay.auth_token = 'YOUR AUTH TOKEN HERE'
  ebay.dev_id = 'YOUR DEVELOPER ID HERE'
  ebay.app_id = 'YOUR APPLICATION ID HERE'
  ebay.cert = 'YOUR CERTIFICATE HERE'

# The default environment is the production environment
# Override by setting use_sandbox to true
  ebay.use_sandbox = true
end

Yields:

  • (_self)

Yield Parameters:

  • _self (Ebay::Api)

    the object that the method was called on

end

.service_uriObject
