<b>Restr is a very simple client for RESTful[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representational_State_Transfer] 
web services.</b> It is developed as a lightweight alternative to 
ActiveResource[http://api.rubyonrails.com/files/vendor/rails/activeresource/README.html].

Restr is basically a wrapper around Ruby's Net::HTTP, offering
a more RESTfully meaningful interface.

See the Restr class documentation for more info, but here's a simple
example of RESTful interaction with Restr:

  require 'restr'
  kitten = Restr.get('http://example.com/kittens/1.xml')
  puts kitten['name']
  puts kitten['colour']
  
  kitten['colour'] = 'black'
  kitten = Restr.put('http://example.com/kittens/1.xml', kitten)
