Token authentication

Simple code

require 'net/http'

url = URI.parse('get json/other data here [link]')
req = Net::HTTP::Get.new(url.to_s)
res = Net::HTTP.start(url.host, url.port) {|http|
puts res.body

Just wondering how to put an authentication token in php cURL i do it like this

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Authorization: Bearer xxx')); //Bearer token for authentication

Wondering how to do it for Ruby.


You can simply add header:

req = Net::HTTP::Get.new(url.to_s)
req['Authorization'] = "Bearer xxx"

or shorter:

request = Net::HTTP::Get.new(url.to_s, {'Authorization' => 'Bearer vF9dft4qmT'})
