Connect to HubSpot Data in Ruby

Connect to HubSpot data in Ruby with ruby-dbi, dbd-odbc, and ruby-odbc.

The CData ODBC Driver for HubSpot makes it easy to integrate connectivity to live HubSpot data in Ruby. This article shows how to create a simple Ruby app that connects to HubSpot data, executes a query, and displays the results.

Create an ODBC Connection to HubSpot Data

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

HubSpot uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL or you can obtain your own by registering an app.

See the Getting Started chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Installing Ruby and Necessary Gems

If you do not have Ruby installed, refer to the Ruby installation page. With Ruby installed, you will need to install the ruby-dbi, dbd-odbc, and ruby-odbc gems:

gem install dbi gem install dbd-odbc gem install ruby-odbc

Create a Ruby App with Connectivity to HubSpot Data

Create a new Ruby file (for example: HubSpotSelect.rb) and open it in a text editor. Copy the following code into your file:

#connect to the DSN require 'DBI' cnxn = DBI.connect('DBI:ODBC:CData HubSpot Source','','') #execute a SELECT query and store the result set resultSet = cnxn.execute("SELECT Slug, PageViews FROM Prospects") #display the names of the columns resultSet.column_names.each do |name| print name, "\t" end puts #display the results while row = resultSet.fetch do (0..resultSet.column_names.size - 1).each do |n| print row[n], "\t" end puts end resultSet.finish #close the connection cnxn.disconnect if cnxn

With the file completed, you are ready to display your HubSpot data with Ruby. To do so, simply run your file from the command line:
