slacken - Tools for working with REST
=====================================

Introduction

Contains the RESTAccess class for calling endpoints including tools for
accessing both json and xml data. Also included are tools for accessing this
information as an AttrDict (attribute dictionary) - a dictionary where keys can
also be accessed as attributes, in javascript style - accessing a value of this
class of type dict will return another AttrDict, however the original object is
always accessible by calling ._as_dict() on an AttrDict object
