The Ruby programming language is currently a popular choice for web development with Rails being the most commonly used framework. With this in mind we're releasing a new demo application that shows how to easily use the AdWords API Ruby client library with Rails.

This simple web application demonstrates the following:

  • authorization against AdWords with OAuth 1.0a and credentials re-use
  • accounts hierarchy retrieval and account selection
  • simple service request (CampaignService.get) and display results
  • basic AdHoc reporting functionality with download support

Check out the README file on installation instructions and detailed walkthrough for the demo.

Download the application from the library site or via git. It is also mirrored on GitHub (pull requests are welcome).
