Great Ruby on Rails REST resources

If I had to choose the single most not-really-well-understood, mystified, unsuccessfully demystified, explained and still not-really-grasped topic in the Rails world (and beyond), my vote would definitely go to REST. It seems to me that there are two types of people in the world: those who don’t get REST (and they think it’s a basic postulate to rocket science explained through quantum theory) and those who get it, and don’t understand the former group (unless they are coming from there, that is).
I have been playing around with RESTful Rails recently. Below is my collection or Rails REST howtos, tutorials and other resources I have found so far and which were adequate for my transition from the first group to the second :-).

You should definitely begin with REST 101 – then check out the other stuff as well!

Please leave a comment if you know some more (just for completeness’ sake – I think the above resources should be enough to grasp RESTful Rails both theoretically and practically.

Creating a site and uploading is considered to be the easy part these days. Especially with languages like ruby on rails you can develop sites in no time. Companies providing hosting services give you a wide variety of options to choose from for your hosting services such as asp hosting or php hosting. Not only that but they also hire 350-040 certified to provide you quality services. Then yahoo hosting provides simple methods for uploading site. With the use of computer backup software you can easily avoid data loss. The actual time consuming part is working on the site’s search engine ranking. Not only does it take time but it is also expensive.

  1. Everyone has been talking about REST, is it really that good?

    I have made a mental note a while ago to try it out for my next project. I’m sure it’s worth the look.

  2. There’s a new book out, “RESTful Web Services.” I’m just starting into it, but so far I think it’s quite good and skimming ahead, I think it’ll be a great resource for folks interested in REST.

  4. “Restful Web Services” is great, but the Rails example in the book no longer works out of the box; it depends on a plugin (actsastaggable) which is a murky state of non-existence. It’s a bummer, because the book walks through an implementation of a clone which seems pretty compelling.
