ActionMessager

ActionMessager is dead simple IM notifications for your app.

Get It

$ sudo gem install action_messager

... or get the source ...

$ git clone [email protected]:giraffesoft/action_messager.git

Usage

ActionMessager works just like ActionMailer. All you have to do start sending IM notifications to your users is subclass ActionMessager::Base; then, create a method that sets an array of recipients, and returns the message you'd like to send:

class JabberNotifier < ActionMessager::Base
  def friendship_request(friendship_request)
    @recipients = friendship_request.receiver.jabber_contact

    "You have received a friendship request from #{friendship_request.sender.name}! Click here to accept or decline: #{friendship_request.url}"
  end
end

Then, wherever you'd like to send the notification:

JabberNotifier.deliver_friendship_request(friendship_request)

That's it!

Configuration

You'll need to configure ActionMessager with your jabber credentials.

ActionMessager::Base.jabber_settings = {
  :username => '[email protected]',
  :password => 'swordfish!'
}
