Integrating QuickBase With Web Services - Gareth Lewis

If you have to use the QuickBase API outside the browser, one option is to access it via Ruby. Ruby is simple, flexible, powerful, easy to install and learn - and the Ruby SDK for QuickBase makes using the API straightforward. Through a series of concrete examples, we'll look at some SDK basics then go onto email, RSS, Twitter, web servers and other topics.

Use URL redirects to chain API calls

Every API call accomodates an rdr parameter. This specifies what URL to redirect the browser to after successful completion of the API call. You can use this to chain as many API calls together as will fit within the size limit of a URL. URLs can only be roughly 1000 characters in length. Don't forget to URL encode the value of the rdr parameter.
