I’ve just finished work on a Ruby Gem which provides an interface for the HotUKDeals (HUKD) REST API.

This gem provides all the following search methods:

  • hottest deals
  • newest deals
  • discussed deals
  • deals by username
  • deals by tag name
  • deals by merchant name
  • online deals only
  • offline deals only
  • keyword search
Each search method also allows you to filter results by category, forum, limit the number of results.
It’s dead easy to install and run:
    require 'hukd'
    hukd	=	Hukd.new("YOUR_API_KEY_HERE")
    deals	=	hukd.hottest('deals')
    deals.each |deal| do
    	puts(deal.title)
    end
Full documentation can be found on the Github page.
