Rails::API Jump to Story

At RailsConf we talked to Santiago Pastorino, one of contributors to Rails::API, a new gem for creating API-only application with hand picked components from Rails which was recently released for people who need to build JavaScript-heavy applications with frameworks like Backbone and Ember. Santiago says the team needs more tests and performance cases to prove the 20 to 30% speed boost compared to Rails the experienced so far. This gem may become a generator on Rails core so that people who need APIs get a great one.
