Under development

This bitch ain't ready for production yet.  Recognize.


sudo gem install yipit


You'll need a Yipit API key.


require 'Yipit'
client = Yipit::Client.new(YOUR_API_KEY)

Yipit uses a Hashie::Mash for return values, providing a handy hash that supports dot notation:

=> "$100 Gift Certificate, Your Price $40"
=> "New York"

0.0.1 - March 14, 2011

  • Initial version

Under the hood

How to contribute

  • 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.
