Overview

This is the base Project class for providers

Providers should inherit this class and redefine the methods

Each provider should have their own @system defined. For example, ticketmaster-unfuddle's @system is :unfuddle and ticketmaster-lighthouse's Methods that must be implemented by the provider

  • self.find_by_id

  • self.find_by_attributes

Methods that might need to be implemented by the provider

  • tickets

  • ticket

  • initialize

  • update

  • destroy

  • self.create

Methods that would probably be okay if the provider left it alone:

  • self.find - although you can define your own to optimize it a bit

  • update!

A provider should define as many attributes as feasibly possible. The list below are some guidelines as to what attributes are necessary, if your provider's api does not implement them, point it to an attribute that is close to it. (for example, a name can point to title. Remember to alias it in your class!)

  • id

  • name

  • created_at

  • updated_at

  • description

Class Method Details

.find(*options) ⇒ Object

Find project You can also retrieve an array of all projects by not specifying any query.

  • find() or find(:all) - Returns an array of all projects

  • find(##) - Returns a project based on that id or some other primary (unique) attribute

  • find([#, #, #]) - Returns many projects with these ids

  • find(:first, :name => 'Project name') - Returns the first project based on the project's attribute(s)

  • find(:last, :name => 'Some project') - Returns the last project based on the project's attribute(s)
