This is a Ruby interface to the Gandi XML-RPC API.


Add to your Gemfile:

gem 'gandi'

Then bundle install.


gem install gandi

Basic Usage

Every call to the Gandi API is authenticated so sessions are required to have a unique API key. If you don’t have it already, you can retrieve your API key from your Gandi account page.

require 'gandi'

api ="24-character API key") # Endpoint:

api.catalog.list(product: {type: 'domains'})

Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) Endpoint

Alongside the production API, Gandi provides an Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) system.

require 'gandi'

api ="24-character API key", env: :test)


For further information see the Gandi API documention at

Fault codes

When the XMLRPC call returns an error, an exception is raised. Gandi::DataError is raised if the error is due to faulty user input and Gandi::ServerError is raised if it is caused by a server-side internal error.

All the possible fault codes can be found in Gandi API manual.

Both exceptions contain a Gandi::FaultCode object which stores the object name and the cause of the error:

fault_code = Gandi::FaultCode.parse(505237)
# => #<Gandi::FaultCode::Data:...>
# => :object_fqdn
# => :cause_badparameter
