DESCRIPTION ^

INTERFACE ^

new($api_key, $slug)

Create a new WebService::Leanpub object.

Since you need an API key to access any function of the Leanpub API, you have to give that API key as an argument to new().

The same holds for the slug which is the part of the Leanpub URL denoting your book. For instance if your books URL was https::/leanpub.com/your_book, the slug woud be your_book.

get_individual_purchases()

get_individual_purchases( $opt )

Get the data for individual purchases.

Optionally this method takes as argument a hash reference with this key:

page

the page of the individual purchases data.

get_job_status()

Get the status of the last job.

get_sales_data()

Get the sales data.

partial_preview()

Start a partial preview of your book using Subset.txt.

subset()

Start a partial preview of your book using Subset.txt.

preview()

Start a preview of your book.

single( $opt )

Generate a preview of a single file.

The argument $opt is a hash reference with the following keys and values:

content

The content of the file in a scalar string.

publish( $opt )

This will publish your book without emailing your readers.

The argument $opt is a hash reference with the following keys:

email_readers

If the corresponding value evaluates to true, an email is sent to the readers.

release_notes

The value corresponding to this key is sent as release note.

create_coupon( $opt )

Create a coupon.

The argument $opt is a hash reference with the following keys:

coupon_code

Required. The coupon code for this coupon. This must be unique for the book.

discounted_price

Required. The amount the reader will pay when using the coupon.

start_date

Required. The date the coupon is valid from. Formatted like YYYY-MM-DD.

end_date

The date the coupon is valid until. Formatted like YYYY-MM-DD.

has_uses_limit

Whether or not the coupon has a uses limit.

Values '0', 'false', 'no' count as false, all other values as true.

max_uses

The max number of uses available for a coupon. An integer.

note

A description of the coupon. This is just used to remind you of what it was for.

suspended

Whether or not the coupon is suspended.

Values '0', 'false', 'no' count as false, all other values as true.

update_coupon( $opt )

Update a coupon.

Takes the same argumentes for $opt) as create_coupon() but only the key coupon_code is required, all others are optional.

get_coupon_list()

Returns a list of the coupons for the book formatted as JSON.

pretty_json( $json )

This is just a convenience function for pretty printing the output of the get_*() functions.

summary()

This returns information about the book.

Since this API function does not need an API key, this is the only method that returns meaningful data if you provide a wrong API key.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Missing API key for Leanpub

Since the Leanpub API only works with an API key from leanpub.com, you have to provide an API key as first argument to WebService::Leanpub->new().

Missing SLUG for book

Since every action in the Leanpub API involves a book which is identified by a slug, you have to provide the slug as the second argument to WebService::Leanpub->new().

A slug is the part after the hostname in the Leanpub URL of your book. So for instance for the Book "Using the Leanpub API with Perl" which has the URL https://leanpub.com/using-the-leanpub-api-with-perl the slug is using-the-leanpub-api-with-perl.
