industries = BusinessDotGov::LoansGrants::INDUSTRIES
@industry = industries[rand(industries.length)]      
@state_abbreviation = 'FL'

# format is :json by default
results ={:industry => @industry, :state_abbreviation => @state_abbreviation})
puts "Found #{results.size} results for #{@industry} within #{@state_abbreviation}"
# :json format
puts "First result title #{results.first['title']}"

# specify if :xml format is desired
results ={:industry => @industry, :state_abbreviation => @state_abbreviation, :format => :xml})
# :xml format

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.
