• Rails and the iPhone

    With the growing Rails and iPhone communities, many developers seek ways to easily interact with their Rails applications on their iPhones. Enter ObjectiveResource, a framework for interacting with Rails on your iPhone. Go to iphoneonrails.com to learn more.

    ObjectiveResource is an Objective-C port of Ruby on Rails’ ActiveResource. It provides a way to serialize objects to and from Rails’ standard RESTful web-services (via XML or JSON) and handles much of the complexity involved with invoking web-services of any language from the iPhone.

    The code was officially released to the public a little more than a month ago (Feb 4th). I wish them all the best with this venture and want to buy them a drink if they are at Railsconf this year. Way to go folks!

    There is an introductory screencast for getting started.
