How to Get It


The easiest way to get your giddy hands on this goodness is by using RubyGems.

Be sure RubyGems is installed, then just pop open your terminal and run

$ gem install smartystreets_ruby_sdk

Alternately, you can add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'smartystreets_ruby_sdk'

Then execute:

$ bundle

Download the Source Code

You can find source code of the Smarty Ruby SDK repository on Github which contains many sample code snippets.

Use the source, Luke!
