rest_resource -- rest-client gem wrapper to provide a simple CRUD interface

Build Status


The gem provides a basic CRUD operation to the resources. It is basically rest-client wrapper. Once you use it, you have find, create, update and delete (Currently I implemented only find and create)

The goal of this gem is to provide a minimum CRUD client interface for the RESTful web services. It doesn't make the API to be ActiveRecord like. Rather, it lets the users have the full control on the resources, especially on the error handling.


Given you need to fetch user from a web service. You can write:

class User < RestResource::Resource
   class << self
     def site

     def resource_name

To use it, you can just do:

user = User.find 1

user = User.create :name => "Leslie Cheung", :login => "singer"

Both operation assume your web service controller returns a json string which can be initialized into an object.
