Contacts gem is not fetching the Gmail a/c contacts

Hi All,

I have used the contacts gem to import mail accounts contacts for invite
friends’ module in my application.

It was working perfectly; I have tested that before getting into live
with Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail.

Now, I was re-checking every feature on my site, so tried to import the
contacts from Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail is working perfectly as I tested
before, but for Gmail is not working.

Then I was checking contacts gem what it is throwing the errors. It
says,

C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems
/contacts-1.0.16/lib/contacts/gmail.rb:43:in `real_connect’: Username
and password do not match (Contacts::AuthenticationError)

I have passed the correct username and password.

Is anyone facing the same problem?

If you have used the contacts gem in your project, please re-check /
re-test that and let me know the status for Gmail domain.

Looking forwarded (suggestion and solutions for this issue),

Thanks,
Sathish K.

Hello,

I am facing the same issue. On a little debugging, I have reached to
point
where the exception is raised due to the following

data.index(“New to Gmail? It’s free and easy”)
in gmail.rb file line 42 .

I think there are some URL changes recently done or some argument
changes.

Hi Saideed,

Thanks for your comment here.

I have checked too… Gmail and hotmail too changed some protocols or
their secure way of authentication or as you said arguments.

Actually, I was dogged into that issue after posting this,

In Gmail, There is something called GALX parameter which one’s value
(random value but encoded) used differently in firefox, IE and
components. As such when you are hitting the gmail server for requesting
login(www.gmail.com) page. It creates that value and sent it back with
login page.

When you have entered your logging in details and hits the submit
button, it will passed, verified and logged in.

Same as components also has this GALX, it passed that GALX through
cookie.

It thrown me like your cookies are not turned on! please turn it on!
like that error.

thanks once again…

Anyone found solution…?
