I made a quite simple ruby web app. It uses scrubyt and mysql to store results as cached results. The program is quite simple. It shows a form, you enter a value and the controller makes an external http call, parse the data and show the result for the user.
But I have a problem. I have the requirement to let a ruby program from command line more or less run the same function that on web is been handled by the form controller.
How can I re-use the web app when doing a standalone program callable from command line? I dont want to recode as all the app is already functioning. I am requested to do a ruby program that is called like this:
ruby ./client.rb some_param
Where should I put this client.rb? How do I use the code from the application that runs on the web?
