Arkenstone Build Status Code Climate

Arkenstone is a replacement for ActiveRecord that uses RESTful services to get and store data.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'arkenstone'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install arkenstone

Usage

Include the Arkenstone::Document module in your class, set the url and attributes and away you go.

class User
  include Arkenstone::Document

  url 'http://example.com/users/'
  attributes :name, :age, :gender
end

User instances will have accessor properties for :name, :age, and :gender. You can also save, and update_attributes as well:

my_user = User.create(name: 'Thorin', age: 195, gender: 'M', bearded: true)

This will make a POST to http://example.com/users/. If json data is returned from the server, it will be applied to the attributes of the object.

How about updating?

# Assuming Thorin has an id of 1
thorin = User.find(1)

# Thorin lost a bet and shaved... well you know how bets go!
thorin.update_attribute :bearded, false

This does a PUT to http://example.com/users/1. Again, returning json is translated back into a usable Thorin.

You can also change attributes using #update_attributes or setting them at a field level and saving.

# Thorin didn't shave for a day
thorin = User.find(1)
thorin.bearded = true
thorin.save

Arkenstone knows if you're a new object or not and properly uses POST or PUT where needed.

Here is a list of RESTful expectations that come with the library:

Model.find(1)                                                               # => GET http://example.com/1
Model.all                                                                   # => GET http://example.com
Model.new.save                                                              # => POST http://example.com
Model.find(1).save                                                          # => PUT http://example.com/1
Model.find(1).update_attribute(:attribute, 'value')                         # => PUT http://example.com/1
Model.find(1).update_attributes(attribute1: 'value1', attribute2: 'value2') # => PUT http://example.com/1
Model.find(1).destroy                                                       # => DELETE http://example.com/1
