RESTful resource utilities for Strelka::App.

This plugin allows you to automatically set up RESTful service resources for Sequel::Model-derived classes.

For example, if you have a model class called ACME::Customer for tracking customer data, you can set up a RESTful resource in your Strelka app like this:

require 'strelka'
require 'acme/customer'

class ACME::RestServices < Strelka::App
    plugins :restresources
    resource ACME::Customer

Assuming the primary key for customers is a column called 'id', this will install the following routes:

options 'customers'
get 'customers'
get 'customers/:id'
post 'customers'
post 'customers/:id'
put 'customers'
put 'customers/:id'
delete 'customers'
delete 'customers/:id'

The restresources plugin depends on the routing, negotiation, and parameters plugins, and will load them automatically if they haven't been already.
