A couple quick additional methods on the api to better support JS MVC frontends.

  • Create users (don't have to be an admin) @ /api/users. Returns api key in response
  • Login users via POST /api/sessions w/ json: "{ session: {email: "email", password: "password"}}"". returns api key in response.
  • Get current order & user @ "/api/status"
  • get /api/orders w/ a logged in 'non-admin' user will return all orders belonging to that user.


These modifications are changing the default spree authorization for the api that could introduce security issues. Be sure you look through the changes before you do anything productiony!


Add spree_api_extend to your Gemfile:

gem 'spree_api_extend'

Bundle your dependencies and run the installation generator:

bundle exec rails g spree_api_extend:install


Be sure to bundle your dependencies and then create a dummy test app for the specs to run against.

bundle exec rake test_app
bundle exec rspec spec

When testing your applications integration with this extension you may use it's factories.
Simply add this require statement to your spec_helper:

require 'spree_api_extend/factories'
