Hi, I started dabbling with Ruby a little while ago and for a hobby project I'd like to build a web service with a view to later building a Ruby/GTK client to use the service. I want to learn about REST too so it seems to me that Rails looks like a sensible way forward - the URIs it generates are already quite RESTful and it looks like it'd deal with a lot of the mundane stuff for me with little effort. I've never used Rails though, so I don't really know where to start. All the tutorials I've found focus on building websites, but I'm not interested in building anything a browser can interpret. Google hasn't really been helping me either - I've found one article about Ruby and REST but it's about adding a REST API to an existing Rails app. Can anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial or some examples or something please? Cheers, Richard.
