This is an unofficial library that allows Ruby applications to interface with the Bigcommerce API, an online eCommerce service used to power online stores. BigCommerce contains a RESTful API that allows remote retrieval of customers, orders and products via a XML web service. The API allows requests to be made to search for the above data, or retrieve a particular entry from the database for one of the supported data types. Written by Christian Orthmann, this ruby library is under MIT license.
