Hello World

Navigate to localhost:9292/api with a browser. This is a hypermedia API, so all links are clickable.


This is a good demo to use with Hyperclient. Check out splines_endpoint_with_hyperclient_spec.rb for a complete example that retrieves, creates, updates and deletes splines.


This project uses ActiveModel and defines a dummy Spline class.


Check out the with-activerecord branch for a complete example that uses ActiveRecord and a PostgreSQL database.


Check out the with-mongoid branch for a complete example that uses Mongoid and a MongoDB database.
