Scott Raymond on Refactoring to REST

Posted by josh

Gonzo Rails developer Scott Raymond has written an analysis of how he refactored using RESTful routes. It’s the most cogent and compelling description of the benefits of a CRUDdy/RESTful design that I’ve seen. He reduced the number of actions in the application by 25%, and reduced the size of his routes file from 16 lines to 3. Isn’t small beautiful?
