WebService::Xero - Access Xero Accounting Package Public and Private Application API
The Xero API is a RESTful web service and uses the OAuth (v1.0a) https://oauth.net/core/1.0a/ protocol to authenticate 3rd party applications.
WebService::Xero aims primarily to simplify the authenticated access to Xero API service end-point by encapuslating the OAuth requirements.
To enable API access see the Xero Getting started guide
and with the Configured Application Authentication Credentials from https://api.xero.com/Application
this module will allow to to access the API Services.
Xero provides Private, Public and Partner Applications. This module currently supports the Private and Public Application types.
The simplest implementation uses a Private Application as follows:
my $xero = WebService::Xero::Agent::PrivateApplication->new( CONSUMER_KEY => 'YOUR_OAUTH_CONSUMER_KEY',
CONSUMER_SECRET => 'YOUR_OAUTH_CONSUMER_SECRET',
PRIVATE_KEY => "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----.........."
## AND THEN ACCESS THE API POINTS
my $contact_struct = $xero->do_xero_api_call( 'https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/Contacts' );
print Dumper $contact_struct; ## should contain an array of hashes containing contact data.
Xero API call limits are 1,000/day and 60/minute request per organisation limit as described at https://developer.xero.com/documentation/getting-started/xero-api-limits/.
I have started to work at encpsulating the Xero data objects (Contact, Item, Invoice etc ) and will refine for the next release.
