PostgREST serves a fully RESTful API from any existing PostgreSQL database. It provides a cleaner, more standards-compliant, faster API than you are likely to write from scratch.

MessagePack: It's like JSON. but fast and small.
MessagePack is an efficient binary serialization format. It lets you exchange data among multiple languages like JSON but it's faster and smaller. For example, small integers (like flags or error code) are encoded into a single byte, and typical short strings only require an extra byte in addition to the strings themselves.

If you ever wished to use JSON for convenience (storing an image with metadata) but could not for technical reasons (encoding, size, speed...), MessagePack is a perfect replacement.

Cucumber, Webrat, HTTP auth, and your API
When you want to authenticate against an API in your application, and you use the standard Rails integration test methods to call your endpoint, #basic_auth won’t work. You’ll have to specify the HTTP authorization credentials yourself:

wycats's artifice at master - GitHub
Artifice allows you to replace the Net::HTTP subsystem of Ruby
with an equivalent that routes all requests to a Rack application.

You can use Sinatra, raw Rack, or even Rails as your application,
allowing you to build up an equivalent to the remote service you
are mocking out using familiar and convenient tools to route
requests and build up responses.

Cache any API calls you make to other services (for 10 mins by default) to protect yourself from exceeding API limits and from their downtime. I'd expect this would also make things a lot faster than they could be otherwise. Pretty nifty.
