Better Rate Limiting Handling in the Ruby Helper Library for Activities in the Orbit API
For Developers
open-source library provides developers with a tool to seamlessly work with the activities endpoint in the Orbit API in Ruby.
This helper library powers many of the Orbit Community Integrations, such as Meetup, LinkedIn, DEV, and Circle.
In the new release of the library, there is improved handling of rate-limiting in the Orbit API. The API restricts requests to no more than 120 requests per minute. The new version of the library now accounts for that limitation and will pause sending new requests when it encounters the rate limit error, and resume once the limitation has been released.
The Ruby gem can be found on GitHub with instructions on how to use it to build your own applications and services utilizing the Orbit API.
