Accessing Wikipedia's API

Hey folks,

Has anyone used Wikipedia’s API with Rails? It looks like it is
incomplete (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/API) and doesn’t support
REST. All I’m looking to do is pull a summary of an article (a
paragraph or so of text) for a topic I supply.

Cheers,
Dan

Hi Dan,

I also need to what you said in your query. Can you please tell as to
how were you able to do that?

Thanks.
