I am going to be doing some work connecting a Ruby on Rails app into a Salesforce org to create some new data.
Right now there isn't any complex logic, just straight forward data sending into SFDC.
SFDC seems to endorse using: Force.com-Toolkit-for-Ruby, and it looks like it should meet my needs.
I typically develop exclusively inside of SFDC so speak, so I don't use any of the outward facing meta-data apis, etc.
I know that I could use the REST API, however, I wanted to know if anyone has used both of these processes, and which they would recommend:
Force.com Toolkit for Ruby vs. RESTful HTTP Callouts (don't think there are any toolkits/frameworks available yet)
Or if someone has a preferred
Ruby->SOAP API GEM
