Write a Sinatra app that scrapes the contents of another site and presents the data as a REST web service. This could be stock quotes, baseball scores, a translation service, or anything else of comparable effort.
We realize this assignment is a bit ambiguous and open ended. That's intentional. Please take some liberties with your interpretation, and make it fun. With all that said, don't be afraid to ask questions.
Your solution should include a README file that documents usage of the service. The README format is up to you.
When you're comfortable with your code, push the code to Github and deploy the app somewhere we can reach it (Heroku is free). Send the URL to whomever you've been working with at EdgeCase, and we'll get back to you within a few days.
Be prepared to explain your code to us. We will offer constructive feedback.
We're generally opinionated but nice people, so don't stress out. Please have fun with this project and give it your best effort. Cheers!
We don't expect you to spend more than a couple hours on this, and the short timeframe is taken into account during the review. Please don't spend days working on a masterpiece.
