Nestful is a Ruby library for making HTTP requests. It is designed to provide a simple, easy-to-use interface for making requests and handling responses. Nestful is often used for making requests to RESTful APIs.

One of the main features of Nestful is its ability to automatically parse JSON and XML responses and return them as Ruby objects. This allows developers to easily access the data returned by an API without having to manually parse the response.

Netful is aimed at interacting with rest APIs and provides a convenient interface (see example below)
