sharefile-ruby

Easily manage your ShareFile account with ruby

Usage

require 'sharefile-ruby'

Connect

myaccount = ShareFileService.new("yoursubdomain", "youremail", "yourpassword")

Folders

root = myaccount.root_folder

root is now a ShareFolder object that is the root of your sharefile account

new_folder = root.create("New Folder")
new_folder.delete

Files

Users

Where am I?

What do we have here?

root.fetch_children
mystuff = root.children

mystuff is now a list of ShareFolder and ShareFile objects in the root.

Search

results = myaccount.search("superimportantfile.txt")

results is now a list of ShareFolder and ShareFile objects matching your search, according to ShareFile.

Download

results.each do |r|
	r.download(local_path) if r.type == "file"
end

Give it a local path or look for the downloads in your local user folder (wherever ruby wants to put it)

Parents

ShareFile gets a parent and a grandparent (of type ShareFolder) at initialization, if lineage allows. ShareFolder doesn't. Call fetch_parent or fetch_grandparent if you need them.

results.each do |r|
	r.fetch_parent if !r.parent
	r.fetch_grandparent if !r.grandparent
	puts "My name is #{r.displayname}. I am a #{r.type}\n"
	puts "    My parent is #{r.parent.displayname}\n"
	puts "    My grandparent is #{r.grandparent.displayname}\n"
end

Users

mypeeps = myaccount.employees
clientry = myaccount.clients

you now have two lists of ShareUser objects with your employees and clients

Create new user

new_kid = ShareUser.create(myaccount.subdomain, myaccount.authid, "Johnnie", "McFastfingerson", "johnnie@email.com")

OR (if you're not into the whole brevity thing):

new_kid = ShareUser.create(myaccount.subdomain, myaccount.authid, "Johnnie", "McFastfingerson", "johnnie@email.com", true, {"company"=>"myCompany", "createfolders"=>true, "usefilebox"=>true, "manageusers"=>true, "isadmin"=>true, "password"=>"correcthorsebatterystaple"})

where true after the email address sets new_kid as employee. The arguments in the hash are optional; you can specify any subset of these. Default is false on everything, with null (ShareFile-generated) password

Boring legal stuff
