rest_resource -- rest-client gem wrapper to provide a simple CRUD interface
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 that you need to fetch user from a web service. You can write:
class User < RestResource::Resource class << self def site "http://www.example.com" end def resource_name "users" end end end
To use it, you can just do:
user = User.find 1 user = User.create :name => "Leslie Cheung", :login => "singer"
Both operations assume your web service controller returns a json string which can be initialized into an object.
