sorry if this is a repost.


Hi everyone,

I just wanted to follow up on the discussion about REST and Rails.

I've posted two Rails plugins that may be of interest:

* A plugin that adds content negotiation to Rails


* An prototype REST controller that borrows/builds on Dan's and Peter's


I put these plugins together a couple of months ago and have been using
them successfully in my current Rails project, so they've had at  least
a little bit of use and testing.

As far as the REST controller, my implementation is less extensive than
what Dan and Peter have done - it doesn't deal with content types
(instead, the content negotiation plugin does that) and doesn't support
caching declarations.  Having said that, it looks like we're headed in
more or less the same direction.  It would be great if we could converge
on single solution...



P. S. - I've been so busy that I just saw Dan put an updated
implementation of his controller at RubyForge, time to go check it out!
