This gem allows you to easily use the Pivotal Tracker v5 API.

It’s powered by Faraday and Virtus.


Dash of Agile uses tracker_api to create agile dashboards from Pivotal Tracker projects.


Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

“by gem ‘tracker_api’, ‘~> 0.2.0’

And then execute:

“sh $ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

“sh $ gem install tracker_api
