The iPhone is cool and sexy. Rails is cool and sexy. Shouldn’t they be a little more compatible?
We think so and have released the first version of ObjectiveResource, our port of Rails’ ActiveResource to Objective-C for the iPhone. We’ve used it extensively on some of our iphone projects and have gotten a good response from others that have stumbled upon it.
Basically, it provides an easy way to consume and integrate with Rails’ standard XML and JSON RESTful web-services (just as ActiveResource does for Ruby).
iPhoneOnRails.com is where we’re going to keep the development progress and planning for the framework as well as the various resources we’ve established for those that have questions and concerns. So have a look, play with the source yourself, join the mailing list and keep track at the iPhoneOnRails blog.
And let us know if you’re using ObjectiveResource and want to be featured on the site, or have a quote about using the framework you want us to put up.
