About the Book
Learn how to build a maintainable JSON REST API by using the Roda and Sequel and dry-rb set of gems. Move away from messy, traditional Rails code and move towards crisp, clean code.
The sequel is a simple, flexible, and powerful SQL database access toolkit for Ruby. Sequel provides thread safety, connection pooling, and a concise DSL for constructing SQL queries and table schemas. The sequel includes a comprehensive ORM layer for mapping records to Ruby objects and handling associated records.
Roda is a routing tree web framework toolkit. It is built in a similar way to Sequel - a small core, extendible through plugins. This book shows how easy it is to assemble a custom, full-stack framework built from smaller components that Roda provides. This flexibility gives us an opportunity to organize the code in all kinds of ways and the book shows one of such ways.
