Resources for learning to write RESTful-CRUDy applications?

I’m looking for resources that would teach me to write Rails
applications, RESTful-CRUDy style.

I much prefer good exemplary programs to learn from, but could use a
good, concise book as well :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance,
Maurice B. Gladwell

I found Geoffrey Grosenbach’s PeepCode to be a nice little introduction
to REST.

Granted you have to pay a small fee but if you’re looking for a
step-by-step guide to get started it’s well worth it.

You might also find our short series on REST helpful:

We cover more then “why” than they “how”, whereas PeepCode covers more
“how” than “why”.

I’ve checked out the PeepCode, and it looks good. Also, Jeff, I read
your articles and they’re awesome. Many thanks for publishing them and
mentioning them in this thread.

Here’s my small contribution to this discussion: since opening it, I’ve
managed to find two example applications created as showcases of
RESTful-CRUDy design and implementation:

RestBlog:
http://alisdair.mcdiarmid.org/2006/08/02/restblog-an-example-of-the-new-rest-and-crud-rails-style

restolog:
http://code.google.com/p/restolog/

Another great resource is the “RESTful Rails Development” booklet by the
b-simple.de guys, here (PDF):
http://www.b-simple.de/documents/download/6

To sum up, there’s plenty of good material about Rails-REST-CRUD out
there, though the above-mentioned seem like the cream of the crop.
