Documentation

Paapi

paapi is a slim wrapper around Amazon's Product Advertising API 5.0.

This gem is under heavy development and currently incomplete.

Build Status

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'paapi'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install paapi

Usage

Configuration

The library can be configured with an initializer. For Rails, create the file config/initializers/paapi.rb

Paapi.configure do |config|
  config.access_key = 'your-access-key'
  config.secret_key = 'your-secret-key'
  config.partner_tag = 'your-tag'
end

Configurable itemes:

  • access_key
  • secret_key
  • partner_tag
  • partner_type
  • market
  • partner_market
  • test_mode

Using the partner_market configuration item lets you set a hash of marketplaces and partner_tags.

Paapi.configure do |config|
  config.access_key = 'your-access-key'
  config.secret_key = 'your-secret-key'
  config.partner_market = {au: 'au_partner_tag', us: 'us_partner_tag'}
end

client = Paapi::Client.new(market: :au)

client.partner_tag
> 'au_partner_tag'

client.market = :us

client.partner_tag
> 'us_partner_tag'

The full list of market keys is au, br, ca, fr, de, in, it, jp, mx, es, tr, ae, uk, us

Using the Paapi

require 'paapi'

client = Paapi::Client.new(access_key: ENV['access_key'], secret_key: ENV['secret_key'], market: :au, partner_tag: ENV['partner_tag'])

gi = client.get_items(item_ids: '1857231384')

si = client.search_items(keywords: 'Harry Potter')

gv = client.get_variations(asin: 'B00422MCUS')

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

If you create a file config.rb, it will be loaded by bin/console, allowing you to configure keys and markets.

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.
