Setting the API token per request

I'm writing an app in which people can log in using their Lighthouse token to connect to Lighthouse. Thus, I need to be able to set the token used for each request, rather than set it globally.

Did I hear that there's a new Ruby API library coming? And if so, will it make this possible? Or should I roll my own?

    You can append the token to the url using the _token param.

    So you could do:

    Project.find(:all, :params => {:_token => "YOUR TOKEN"})

    If you're using the methods defined in the api like 'tickets', you can exclude the outer :params hash. => "YOUR TOKEN")

    I believe this should work, let me know if it doesn't.
