Ruby on Rails supports RESTful routing out-of-the-box. However, as you move along, you will often find yourself repeating the code for the seven REST actions: index, show, new, create, edit, update, destroy. This gem allows you to get all of the code for free by simply typing 'include BTech::Rest' at top of your controller code. That's it! Even better, you can have nested resources as well by adding a 'belongs_to' statement to your controllers much like you would for ActiveRecord models. This is just the tip of the iceburg so make sure to read the RDoc for more info.
