Ruby on Rails and Office 365 Tutorial


I published a quick tutorial on writing your first Office 365 API app using Ruby on Rails. The tutorial takes you from creating a new Rails project to listing the contents of the user's Inbox using the Mail API. I'd love to get feedback on the tutorial. What do you think of the format? Does it go into enough detail, or too much? For you Ruby experts out there, did I leave any crucial information out?

Update: There's a similar tutorial here: https://dev.outlook.com/RestGettingStarted/Tutorial/ruby. It's essentially the same, but it has an integrated registration tool. Check it out!

Let me know what you think in the comments or on Twitter (@JasonJohMSFT).

    Thank you Mr Jason this loooks very interesting. But this is for Outlook. Are we able to do the same for MS Word 365 documents?

    I’d like people to see a particular document through my ruby on rails site. is this possible?

    advice much appreciated.

    Hi Thank you Jason this looks very promising. Is it at all possible to adopt the same approach but instead of accessing the user’s inbox to access online word documents using WOPI?

    that would be extremely beneficial to a lot of people, I feel.

    1. You can access OneDrive via the Microsoft Graph, which is a similar REST API, so I would think you could. I’m not familiar with WOPI.
