I’m working with the Amazon MWS API. I’ve discovered that the API returns a single hash, or an array of hashes depending on the number of reports generated.
I want to iterate over the hash/hashes and pull out values. I’ve written the code below. Is this the best “ruby” way to handle the problem?
def handle_response(response) if response.is_a?(Hash) [response] else response end end
Then I do something like…
responses = handle_response(api_response) responses.each do |response| some_array << response[:some_key] end
I could handle this better with responses.map, but you get the general idea.
