VCR - Record, Rewind, and Playback Web Services Jump to Story

As we all know, it's bad form to actually contact 3rd party web services from within your test environment. So, to help keep you from doing just that, there's another library available called VCR, which provides an almost comedic DSL - if you were at all cognizant in the 80's. It will automatically record your first contact and the response(s) and automatically play them back in all subsequent tests. And, the data is stored in simple YAML, so it's easy to inspect and manipulate.
