I'm still learning how to work with Ruby and Rails, but initial experiments are working:
(really have just written a few simple models with some relationships)

Subject: [CODE4LIB] local APIs atop III's Sierra DB
I'm wondering if any III Sierra users out there have worked on building an API for accessing their ILS data on top of Sierra's Postgres database. Right now I'm looking into possibly building something to serve local needs and use cases, as we're not terribly confident that III's forthcoming APIs--if they are indeed forthcoming--will really fit the bill.
If this is something you're doing or have considered doing and wouldn't mind comparing notes, please drop me a line! Thanks.
