Bearer Agent for Ruby alternatives and similar gems

Based on the "Third-party APIs" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of Bearer Agent for Ruby or a related project?

Add another 'Third-party APIs' Gem



This gem is a Ruby client to universally call any API using Bearer.sh.

NB: If you are using Rails, also have a look at the Rails gem


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'bearer'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install bearer


Grab your Bearer Secret Key and integration id from the Dashboard and then you can use the client as follows:

Calling any APIs

require "bearer"

bearer = Bearer.new("BEARER_SECRET_KEY") # find it on https://app.bearer.sh/keys
github = (
    .integration("your integration id") # you'll find it on the Bearer dashboard https://app.bearer.sh
    .auth("your auth id") # Create an auth id for your integration via the dashboard

puts github.get("/repositories").data

We use Net::HTTP internally and we return it's response from the request methods (request, get, head, post, put, patch, delete).

More advanced examples:

# With query parameters
puts github.get("/repositories", query: { since: 364 }).data

# With body data
puts github.post("/user/repos", body: { name: "Just setting up my Bearer.sh" }).data

Global configuration

You can configure the client globally with your Secret Key:

Bearer::Configuration.setup do |config|
  config.secret_key = "BEARER_SECRET_KEY" # copy and paste your Bearer `Secret Key`

You can now use the client without having to pass the Secret Key each time:

github = Bearer.integration("your integration id").auth("your auth id")

puts github.get("/repositories").data

Setting the request timeout

By default in bearer client read and open timeouts are set to 5 seconds. Bearer allows to increase the read timeout to up to 30 seconds

Bearer::Configuration.setup do |config|
  # increase the request timeout to 10 seconds, and reduce the open connection timeout to 1 second
  config.http_client_settings = { read_timeout: 10, open_timeout: 1 }

# it is also possible to set the read_timeout and other Net::HTTP client settings per integration

github = Bearer.integration("your integration id", { read_timeout: 10 })

puts github.get("/repositories").data # This request will timeout after 10 seconds


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment. Also make sure you have overcommit installed and initialized in the repo check overcommit repo for further reference.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
