NAME

WWW::Gittip - Implementing the Gittip (now Gratipay) API. More or less.

SYNOPSIS

  use WWW::Gittip;

  my $charts = $gt->charts;

  my $user_charts = $gt->user_charts('szabgab');

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a Perl interface to the Gratipay API. Gittip describes itself as "a way to give small weekly cash gifts to people you love and are inspired by". It is one way you can give small recurring amounts to people who've written open source software that you regularly use.

When necessary, you can get an API key from your account on Gittip at https://www.gratipay.com/about/me/account

                         },
    };

user_tips

Requires API_KEY.

GET /%username/tips.json and returns an array reference of hashes. Each hash is looks like this

          {
            'username' => 'perlweekly',
            'platform' => 'gittip',
            'amount' => '1.01'
          }

  $gt->user_tips($username);

community_members

  $gt->community_members('perl');

Given the name of a community, returns a hash with 3 keys: new, give, and receive corresponding to the 3 columns of the https://www.gratipay.com/for/perl page.

Each key has an array reference as the value. Each arr has several elements:

  {
    new => [
      {
        name => 'szabgab',
      },
      {
        name => 'rjbs',
      },
      ...
    ],
    give => [
      ...
    ],
    receive => [
      ...
    ],
  }

There is no official API, so this call is scraping the HTML page. Currently Gittip limits the number of people shown in each column to 100.

The user could set the limt at a lower number using limit=... in the URL. The user can also set the starting user using offset=...

WWW::Gittip sends multiple requests as necessary to fetch all the users. It uses limit=100 and the appropriate offset= for each request.
