This is a gem for interacting with the WhenHub API.

WhenHub lets you transform time-ordered information such as a timeline or schedule into a beautiful, interactive, embeddable Whencast that entertains, educates, and provides chronological context.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'whenhub'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install whenhub


The best guide for using this gem is the script in bin/test, which exercises all of the supported endpoints and prints the method outputs. You can use this script as a guide for invoking the gem, and you can run it against your live WhenHub account by running:

RESTCLIENT_LOG=stdout bundle exec bin/test [YOUR ACCESS TOKEN]

The gem uses a client model to query against the API. You create and configure a client with your access token. (Note: You can find your access token by visiting your WhenHub account page.)

require 'whenhub'

client = WhenHub::Client.new(access_token: YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN)

After creating the client you're able to make requests to any of the WhenHub APIs. Some examples follow below.

My User Information

user = client.me

My Schedules

schedules = client.schedules.all

Schedule with Events

schedule = client.schedules.find(schedule_id)

Schedules with Events & Media

schedule = client.schedules.find(schedule_id, media: true)

Create a new schedule

schedule = client.schedules.create

Create a new event

event = schedule.events.create

Update an event

event.name = 'My Event'

Remove an event


Delete Multiple Events


Add an image to a Schedule


Add an image to an Event



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.
