Kickstart
a simple API for Kickstarter.com

Usage:

  projects = Kickstarter.by_category(:games, :page => 1)
    # => returns back an array of projects from page 1
    
  projects = Kickstarter.by_list(:ending_soon, :page => 2, :pages => 3)
    # => returns back an array of 3 pages worth of projects, starting from page 2


A Kickstart::Project has the following attributes:
  .name
  .handle
  .description
  .url
  .owner
  .email
  .thumbnail_url
  .pledge_amount
  .pledge_precent
  .pledge_deadline
  
and methods:
  (future)
  .details => get more details from about the project, from the Project details page
  
Options:

  :page => X    # which page number of results to return. May be empty
  :pages => Y   # number of pages worth of results. Don't be stupid and request too many pages...


future: 
 * support filter by pledge_amount
