Postmates is a courier service accessible via Android and iOS apps, allowing offices or individual users to request deliveries form any restaurant or store. Using the Postmates Delivery API, developers can integrate the on-demand delivery service into 3rd party applications. The API specifically allows developers to book a delivery, check delivery prices, request a quote, and track the status of a delivery until its arrival. The Postmates API uses standard HTTP request verbs GET, POST, DELETE, returns JSON formatted responses, and uses Basic HTTP and a customer ID for access for authentication purposes.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
This package is a Ruby wrapper for the Postmates API, allowing Ruby applications to interact with the Postmates Delivery service. Postmates enables users to order courier deliveries of food and objects from any restaurant or store. The Ruby gem requires an API key and customer ID to interface with the API.
