Local Wish List with Net::Amazon

[ #18493 ]

My relatives think I'm hard to buy for, they never know what I want. I recently started an Amazon Wish List but it didn't make anything easier, they couldn't find it! Fair enough, Net::Amazon to the rescue. You need two pieces of information from Amazon.

  1. An API Token. http://amazon.com/soap
  2. Your Wish List ID.

Below is the code I use at my new "Wish List" page, http://caseywest.com/wishes.html. It's Mason, but easily adaptable.

Enjoy!

<%method .title><& PARENT:.title &> &middot; Wish List</%method>

  <& SELF:.list_wish, wish => $_ &>
