Octokit.rb is a Ruby toolkit for the GitHub API. The package wraps the GitHub API in a flat client that follows Ruby conventions, making it easy for Ruby developers to implement without much knowledge of REST design. The client is well documented and has been tested. Supported Ruby versions include: Ruby 1.9.2, Ruby 1.9.3, Ruby 2.0.0, and Ruby 2.1.0.
There’s a lot frustration in the world when it comes to software, especially first with how long it takes to develop anything and, second, with the number of bugs that need to be continuously addressed. The good news is that this is an issue that the people that built programing languages have been aware of for some time. In fact, a significant amount of progress in the form of functional programming languages such as Haskell has already been made.
Any company that makes an API knows that just having the API is not enough. A bare endpoint is probably worse than not having an API at all. To make your API and platform useful you need documentation, tools, examples and forums. If you are a successful API company you start developing a community of people that work with your service. The community shares ideas and helps each other out.
