DESCRIPTION

The Eventful API allows you to build tools and applications that interact with Eventful. This module provides a Perl interface to that API, including the digest-based authentication infrastructure.

VERSION

CLASS METHODS

new

  $evdb = WebService::Eventful->new(app_key => $app_key);

Creates a new API object. Requires a valid app_key as provided by Eventful.

You can also specify an API "flavor", such as yaml, to use a different format.

  $evdb = WebService::Eventful->new(app_key => $app_key, flavor => 'yaml');

Valid flavors are rest, yaml, and json.

OBJECT METHODS

login

  $evdb->login(user => $username, password => $password);
  $evdb->login(user => $username, password_md5 => $password_md5);

Retrieves an authentication token from the Eventful API server.

call

  $data = $evdb->call($method, \%arguments, [$force_array]);

Calls the specified method with the given arguments and any previous authentication information (including app_key). Returns a hash reference containing the results.
