= Restr <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]. For project info and downloads please see http://rubyforge.org/projects/restr *Author*:: Matt Zukowski (matt at roughest dot net) Philippe Monnet (email@example.com) *Copyright*:: Copyright (c) 2008 Urbacon Ltd. *License*:: GNU Lesser General Public License Version 3 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) == License Restr is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
