brightkitey is a cute little wrapper around Brightkite's API. It's possibly horribly broken and incomplete, but it's getting there. Pull requests welcome and appreciated.
installation and usage
gem sources -a http://gems.github.com sudo gem install holman-brightkitey
require 'rubygems' require 'brightkitey' Brightkitey.authenticate(:user => 'dr_strangelove', :password => 'cant-allow-gaps') Brightkitey.logged_in? # quick login check
me = Brightkitey.me me.friends.first.checkins # => grab a friend's checkins home = me.checkins.first.place me.checkin(home) # => check yourself in at home Brightkitey::Place.search("arby's") # => mmmm... I'm thinking Arby's. If you're logged in, this'll pull in those closest to you first.
The official Lighthouse wrapper was fairly helpful for a newbie like me to wrap my head around. Thankee, Justin.
