Resty is a tiny script wrapper for curl. It provides a simple, concise shell interface for interacting with REST services. Since it is implemented as functions in your own shell and not in its own command environment you have access to all the powerful shell tools, such as perl, awk, grep, sed, etc. You can use resty in pipelines to process data from REST services, and PUT or POST the data right back. You can even pipe the data in and then edit it interactively in your text editor prior to PUT or POST.
