ruby-hackernews – an API to access HN’s site

I was surprised to find out that there’s no HTTP API to Hacker News. So, I wrote a simple ruby API (using Mechanize) to access the site: you can find more details about it here. It works with UseTheSource too, you just have to set the base url beforehand with ConfigurationService.base_url = "http://news.usethesource.com".

I hope somebody will find this useful!
