ActiveResource: The RESTful standard

September 27, 2007 § 1 Comment

One of the coolest if under-hyped features of RESTful Ruby on Rails is ActiveResource.  This allows you to treat any other RESTful Rails app as a database backend, providing an ActiveRecord like object model for abstracting that web service.Though changing slightly for Rails 2.0 (to use “/” instead of “;” as a parameter separator), this is becoming the de-facto standard for how to express RESTful URLs.  Work appears to be going on in both Python and Java.  There’s also a really cool JavaScript client.
