Rack

Rack provides a minimal, modular and adaptable interface for developing web applications in Ruby. By wrapping HTTP requests and responses in the simplest way possible, it unifies and distills the API for web servers, web frameworks, and software in between (the so-called middleware) into a single method call. Also see http://rack.github.io/.

marley

Marley is a framework for quickly building RESTful web services and applications. Development is fast for two reasons: Marley implements lots of sensible defaults, all of which can be overridden and most of which can be overridden easily. And Marley servers exchange only data and metadata with clients.
