A Ruby library for interacting with Landslide’s SOAP-based API


This gem can be used to communicate with Landslide's SOAP-based API using ruby code.

WSDL endpoint url:

If you already have a landslide account, contact support to enable the API. You can also start a 30-day trial account here.


$ gem install jeweler curb handsoap


$ gem install landslider


Read the ruby doc.


There is a rake task to generate the configuration settings.

$ rake landslider:gen_config

Example config:

LS_INSTANCE_NAME = 'jaytest'
LS_API_USERNAME = '[email protected]'
LS_API_KEY = '53308ccbdcb7f23fbd81a0b2ebcf12a4'

The API key is simply an md5 hash of the password associated with the username used for the api concatenated with the instance name. "#+ instance_name)"


This is calling login to get a session id which is then used to get a list of accounts.

require 'landslider'
response = Landslider.('LOGINTOKEN=' + LS_INSTANCE_NAME)
response = Landslider.get_accounts(response[:session_id])
response[:accounts].each do || 
    puts "id: #{[:account_id]} name: #{[:account_name]}"


The default rake task is set to run the tests.

$ rake

Tests are needed here because the API uses a specific XML structure for requests and responses.


  1. Fork it.
  2. Create a branch (git checkout -b my_markup)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am "Added Snarkdown")
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my_markup)
  5. Create an [Issue][1] with a link to your branch
  6. Enjoy a refreshing Diet Coke and wait
