Day 76 : #100DaysofCode - First Time Using Unsplash Gem

sincerelybrittany profile image Brittany ・8 min read

Today I continued to work on my photo app . I decided to use the unsplash gem . I was able to add it and now I am just trying to iterate though the unsplash object to get the photos I need. At the moment what I am able to search for the following:

@photo = Unsplash::Photo.search("cats")

And when I run @photo.first, I get the following:

#<Unsplash::Photo:0x00007fc9406d3768 @attributes=#<OpenStruct
