Mapping API Resources & Handling Pagination

Your Teacher

Hi, I'm Chris. I'm the creator of GoRails, and Jumpstart. I spend my time creating tutorials and tools to help Ruby on Rails developers build apps better and faster.

About This Episode

The core of an API wrapper Rubygem is defining the Resource endpoints so developers can make requests cleanly. We'll also learn how to handle pagination for endpoints that return a list of results.


API resources are typically defined with a group of all the actions you can perform on them. You'll typically have a "list" endpoint that lists all the available records. The "list" is going to be paginated, so we'll learn how we can build a special Collection object that knows how to handle pagination and instantiate the correct classes for each individual record returned.
