Rails + Amazon


#1

Hi,

I am new to ruby and just trying to get into Rails. Very interesting
and I hope I will be getting into it fast… thanks a lot to all the
amazing work done on this project!

OK, my question now :wink:

How to integrate Amazon product search into rails? I want to put some
books on my site wih he amazon API.

I found this:

http://journal.gleepglop.com/articles/2005/06/06/amazon-on-rails

but unfortunately the example code is 404ed and I am not quite sure if
I understood everything.

So I f there is some more rails + amazone info out there I would be
happy if someone could point me there!

Thanks!

Rubena

Hey Rubena !

I’m sure the Rails + Amazon integration has a lot smaller code base
than the other integrations… that’s for sure :slight_smile:

Since this is the Ruby group, you may want to post this to the Rails
mailing list, at:
http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails

Ruby doesn’t imply Rails.

Thanks !

rad means rapid application development, but it’s also the name of a
comic
supervillain, apparently.

It’s an '80s-vintage synonym for “cool” or “awesome”, derived from
“radical”.

Like, totally awesome, dude.

Or maybe Rapid Application Development.

Either interpretation is equally appropriate.
