Simple Ruby Client for Immobilienscout24.


gem install is24


# create client
client =
  consumer_key: YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY,
  consumer_secret: YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET

Get exposé for object

expose = client.expose(ID)

# complete expose
puts expose

# eg. address
puts expose.contactDetails.address


IS24 uses oauth v1.0.

Step 1: Get a request token

Set up a new client

client =
  consumer_key: YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY,
  consumer_secret: YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET

and request a request_token providing a callback uri to your app

request_token = client.request_token(YOUR_CALLBACK_URI)

## returns
# {
#  :oauth_token => OAUTH_TOKEN,
#  :oauth_token_secret => OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET,
#  :redirect_uri => ""
# }

Redirect your user to the redirect_uri to authorize your request.

Step 2: Request access token

Once the user has authorized your request you'll receive a get request to your callback. Parse the response params and grab your tokens:

tokens = client.request_access_token(
  oauth_token: OAUTH_TOKEN,
  oauth_token_secret: OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET,
  oauth_verifier: OAUTH_VERIFIER )

## returns
# {
#  :oauth_token=> OAUTH_TOKEN,
#  :oauth_token_secret=> OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET
# }

Until the user revokes permission to your app, the access_token is valid for an unlimited time. Store the tokens and reuse them for subsequent calls to restricted resources of the REST API.

  • Fork the project.
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch.
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution.
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
