Publish with Ruby

Use the following code snippet to publish a message on a WebSocket channel with Ruby.

require "uri"
require "net/http"
require "json"

url = URI("https://www.piesocket.com/api/publish")

https = Net::HTTP.new(url.host, url.port);
https.use_ssl = true

request = Net::HTTP::Post.new(url)
request["Content-Type"] = "application/json"
request.body = {
    key: "oCdCMcMPQpbvNjUIzqtvF1d2X2okWpDQj4AwARJuAgtjhzKxVEjQU6IdCjwm", #Demo key, get yours at https://piesocket.com
    secret: "d8129f82f8dd71910aa4a7efa30a7297", #Demo secret, get yours at https://piesocket.com
    channelId: 1,
    message: { "text": "Hello world!" }

response = https.request(request)
puts response.read_body

This sends a JSON message to channel 1, to send a string, replace message: { "text": "Hello world!" } with message: "Hello world!"

Please note that this example uses a demo key and secret, which is public. The demo key is only for quick testing purposes, and you should not use this in your application.
