What is Angus?

Angus is a REST-like API framework which fits perfectly with Ruby. It is based on rack, so it can be used to complement an existing app or as standalone service to easily develop RESTful APIs. It is a lightweight framework, with special focus on simplicity. Angus is an excellent option for creating REST-like APIs


BuildStatus Gem Version

Angus is production-ready, but still under development. We are working hard to keep bringing new features and fixing any bug that may appear.
