Overview

To send an URL post commit, you have to set up your URL and, optionally, username and password.

post_commit :url do
  post "http://example.com", :message => "Post commit"
end

If you need to authorize your request with basic auth, you can set your username and password.

post_commit :url do
  authorize :username => "johndoe", :password => "mypass"
  post "http://example.com", :message => "Post commit"
end

You can post data encoded as JSON or XML. Just set the :data_type option.

post_commit :url do
  set :data_type, :json
  set :data_type, :xml
end

To post a XML, your params hash need to be a multi-level hash. For instance, the hash {:message => { :title => "Some title", :body => "Some message" }} will be converted to

<message>
  <title>Some title</title>
  <body>Some message</body>
</message>

Gotcha: to send a normal POST, you have to specify a flat hash. So {:a => 1} is ok, but {:a => {:b => 1}} will fail.
