Developing an API service with Ruby

Our current project involves creating a json-based API service, which can be called either from a web browser, or from other code. We started developing it directly in Rails, but then found the grape project on github.
Grape seems to be a much better fit for the project than Rails was. We will still use Rails for the front end website, but using grape for the API service means that the code is a lot simpler.
