Server API overview

The Server API Overview provides information on how to perform specific actions using our Server libraries.

Where possible each section provides an overview of the action, a reference-style guide to the constructor, property or method and an example of how it is used

The reference-style guide and examples may contain information for different languages. You can choose which language you wish to view by clicking on the appropriate tab as below.

require 'pusher'

pusher_client =
  app_id: 'APP_ID',
  key: 'APP_KEY',
  secret: 'APP_SECRET'

class HelloWorldController < ApplicationController

Note! If you created your app in a different cluster to the default us-east-1, you must configure the cluster option as well. See how.
