server side HTTP Client (Browser)

Hi,

Is there anything on in RoR or Ruby that can be used as a server side HTTP Client. Something like HTTP Unit and jsdom from NodeJS.

I'm trying to log into some custom site and scrap the data from them. It would be a plus if the client also support javascript.

Thanks.

Julian

That’s really out of scope of RoR.

But there are some other gems in Ruby that could help you out.
