I'm having a ridiculously hard time doing something presumably simple...
I am trying to run a simple POST request in ruby. I've looked at curb, typhoeus, rest-client, etc... The post request has basic auth (via api key) and two params...
I have the command written out in curl form below, which works perfectly.
curl -X POST https://api.com/v1 -u any_string:abc123 -d var1="help" -d var2="me"
I've use this tool before with some success. https://jhawthorn.github.io/curl-to-ruby/
Your curl statement generates this Ruby code.
require 'net/http' require 'uri' uri = URI.parse("https://api.com/v1") request = Net::HTTP::Post.new(uri) request.basic_auth("any_string", "abc123") request.set_form_data( "var1" => "help", "var2" => "me", ) response = Net::HTTP.start(uri.hostname, uri.port, use_ssl: uri.scheme == "https") do |http| http.request(request) end # response.code # response.body
There are about a million different HTTP request libraries in Ruby but sometimes its just simple to write it in Net HTTP (Net HTTP is included in the Ruby Standard Library).
