Scott Raymond on Refactoring to REST

Posted by josh, July 20, 2006 @ 10:00 am in Sightings

Gonzo Rails developer Scott Raymond has written an analysis of how he refactored IconBuffet.com 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?
