A ruby library that given a Gnip activity stream XML , will allow you to interact with that entry as a first-class Ruby object.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install gnip_gnop
The library assumes that you have a well formed activity stream entry element (generally chunked in via a Gnip stream). You can then parse that xml element like this:
> entry = GnipGnop::Entry.parse(xml)
Given this object reference, you can then "walk" the XML object's hierarchy.
> entry.id => "tag:search.twitter.com,2005:180761363340197888"
Or, a more complex example:
> entry.author.name => "greeneyedtengu"
Where there were namespace conflicts (for example there is an element as well as a namespaced author element, e.g. activity:author, in which cases I camelcased the accessor.
So for example the activity author has an id, which can be accessed like:
> entry.activity_author.id => "http://twitter.com/greeneyedtengu"
