Vasco is a simple UI for exploring the RESTful routes configured for your application. To install the plugin (using Rails later than July 14, 2008):
> script/plugin install git://github.com/relevance/vasco.git
> cd vendor/rails
> git clone git://github.com/relevance/vasco.git
> rm -rf vasco/.git
> cd ../..
> require ‘vendor/plugins/vasco/install’
> rake vasco:explore
From here, you will be provided with links to all registered RESTful routes. You can perform GETs, POSTs, PUTs and DELETEs. The UI will know not only the routes, but the schema for each model in your application. If there is a standard Rails configuration linking a controller to a model, the UI will present you with a form you can use to fill out model details for POSTs and PUTs, and will even provide default IDs if you have seeded the database with fixture data already.
