Treequel - an honest LDAP library
Treequel is an LDAP toolkit for Ruby. It is intended to allow quick, easy access to LDAP directories in a manner consistent with LDAP's hierarchical, free-form nature.
It's inspired by and modeled after Sequel, a kick-ass database library.
Here are a few short examples to whet your appetite:
# Connect to the directory at the specified URL dir = Treequel.directory( 'ldap://ldap.company.com/dc=company,dc=com' ) # Get a list of email addresses of every person in the directory (as # long as people are under ou=people) dir.ou( :people ).filter( :mail ).map( :mail ).flatten # Get a list of all IP addresses for all hosts in any ou=hosts group # in the whole directory: dir.filter( :ou => :hosts ).collection.filter( :ipHostNumber ). map( :ipHostNumber ).flatten # Get all people in the directory in the form of a hash of names # keyed by email addresses dir.ou( :people ).filter( :mail ).to_hash( :mail, :cn )
More elaborate examples of real-world usage can be found in the examples/ directory in the distribution.
