Rails plugin for inviting people in your GMail, Yahoo, ... address book?


Is there a plugin available that offers integration with your GMail, Yahoo, etc. address books, so a user can easily select e-mail addresses? I’ve seen similar functionality on Facebook and Twitter and hoping someone has already open sourced the code.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the link, that looks like what I need. If I can make a generic Rails plugin for the UI I’ll open source it.


The Google contacts data api will let you query a users contacts without requiring the user to give their password away to the 3rd party site. Contacts API Migration Guide  |  People API  |  Google Developers I haven't used it myself, I only heard about it on the rails envy podcast.
