Gmail API

Has anyone written or used any rails tools to access the Gmail API from
their rails applications?

I want to give my users the option of inviting all of their gmail
contacts
to my service.

Thanks,
Chad

I also want to know about it

I used http://rubyforge.org/projects/gmailutils/, though I didn’t try
accessing contacts with it.

Worked like a charm. Does anyone know of similar plugins for other
services
such as hotmail, yahoo, msn, aol, etc?

Thanks Rick, that’s a great package. Does anyone know if gmail.com
monitors usage and shuts down accounts and seem to be getting accessed
via an API? Is there any sort of rate-limiting? I remember getting
‘lockdown in sector 4’ a long time ago when using POP to pull emails
from Gmail.

I’ve used http://www.getmycontacts.com/

Can’t beat the price, although, runs via php so you’d have to consume
the web form as some sort of service. I only used the AOL import, but
works fairly painlessly. I ended up hacking their default forms to
output nicer/cleaner html to make the screen scrape easier.

Just got locked down in Sector 4. Does anyone know how to stay below
the lockdown threshhold? I was pausing 1 second between every email.

I’m using pop to check it now. I tried several ways to get pop3/ssl
to work in ruby, but gave up and used python instead.
