Welcome to your linkout gem! Since linkedin no more allows normal developers to have access to full profile. linkout is the gem used to allow you to scrap linkedin profile pages freely.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install linkout
require 'linkout' profile = .new "https://linkedin.com/in/some-profile" puts profile.name #=> "Some name" puts profile.basic_info[:current_title] #=> "Some title"
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake spec to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
To install this gem onto your local machine, run
bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in
version.rb, and then run
bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the
.gem file to rubygems.org.
