Hey guys,

Just to show you how you can do things with the API i whipped up a tiny little ruby script you can run in the background that will give you growl notifications as your new sales come in.

new_sales_with_growl.rb

If there’s enough demand I might tidy it up a little more, add a nice logo and some doco, and wrap it up in a ruby gem. For now it’s really just a proof of concept to show you how easy it is to work with the new API

Enjoy!

BTW , you’ll also need to have the json gem installed.

should be as easy as
gem install json

assuming of course you have rubygems installed :)
