The Sword2Ruby gem provides Sword client functionality when run against a Sword 2.0 compliant server. It eases integration of Ruby applications with Sword servers, taking care of things like authentication, deposit-receipts and the parsing of Sword tags. It was developed as part of the JISC Sword 2.0 project. For more information on Sword, see: http://www.swordapp.org/. The Sword 2 specification can be found at: http://swordapp.org/sword-v2/sword-v2-specifications/ This code lives at https://github.com/swordapp/sword2ruby.
