Respect for Rails 0.1.0 is out!


Just to let you know that I have just released a new Rails plug-in called: Respect for Rails.

Never feel the need to document your REST API while still developing it because a colleague of yours is making a mobile app client at the same time? If yes, then this gem is for you.


  • describe the structure of your server requests/responses using the compact DSL provided.

  • mount the engine in your routes.rb

Respect for Rails:

  • generates an interactive documentation page in an engine (following standard)

  • offers a filter for requests/responses validation.

  • sanitize your parameters while validating them.

Check it out at:

A basic Rails 3 example app is included in the repository.

It is still in beta but the existing API should not move, so you can use it safely. The major feature I plan to add before to release version 1.0.0 is a way to let users document their web app through resources.

Feel free to contact me for further information or to post a message on the dedicated discussion group:!forum/ruby-respect-gem-talk

Have a great day!
