An addition to auspostie.com, prompted by Dr Nic’s suggestion in the comments of the earlier blog post – the postie gem. It allows easy parsing of Postie search results, and also provides a command-line tool for searching.
sudo gem install postie
To use within your own ruby code:
require 'postie' Postie::Locality.find("Melbourne")
Again, extremely simple, but just makes access to the data that little bit easier.
Now, what would be really cool is a Quicksilver plugin that queries the API. Any volunteers to code that up?
