Java/Groovy API for Remember The Milk

View project onGitHub

A Remember The Milk API for Java-based projects!

GroovyRTM allows you to easily take advantage of the Remember The Milk REST API using any language on the JVM. In short, you can now write apps for Remember The Milk without having to worry about all the HTTP transaction stuff, error handling, etc. As its name implies, it's written in Groovy, which made it much easier to write and test.

Getting Started:

You need 2 things to create a app using GroovyRTM:

Gradle/Grails build config

compile 'com.eriwen:groovyrtm:2.1.2'

Maven config


Simple Example Java Application:

import org.eriwen.rtm.*;
class MyGroovyRtmTest {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        GroovyRtm groovyrtm = new GroovyRtm("<api key>","<shared secret>");

Authentication Example:

package groovyrtmauth;
import java.awt.Desktop;
import org.eriwen.rtm.*;
public class MyGroovyRtmTest {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
       GroovyRtm rtm = new GroovyRtm("myapikey", "mysharedsecret");
       try {
           if (!rtm.isAuthenticated()) {
               // Start login process by getting the authorization URL
               try {
                   String authUrl = rtm.getAuthUrl();
                   if (Desktop.isDesktopSupported()) {
                       // Open the auth web page
                       Desktop desktop = Desktop.getDesktop();
                       desktop.browse(new URI(authUrl));
                       System.out.println("I've just opened a web page so you can authorize Groovy RTM");
                   } else {
                       System.out.println("Please open " + authUrl + " in a web browser to authorize Groovy RTM");
                   System.out.println("Press any key when done...");
                   //TODO: Put your application logic or button here so users can click a button when done
                   // GroovyRTM automatically stores the auth token
                   String authToken = rtm.authGetToken();
                   if (authToken != null) {
                       // We're golden!
                       System.out.println("Groovy RTM successfully authorized!!");
               } catch (URISyntaxException ue) {
               } catch (IOException ioe) {
           } else {
               System.out.println("Groovy RTM already authorized!");
       } catch (GroovyRtmException rse) {
