Roar is a framework for parsing and rendering REST documents. Nothing more.
Representers let you define your API document structure and semantics. They allow both rendering representations from your models and parsing documents to update your Ruby objects. The bi-directional nature of representers make them interesting for both server and client usage.
Roar comes with built-in JSON, JSON-HAL, JSON-API and XML support. Its highly modular architecture provides features like coercion, hypermedia, HTTP transport, client caching and more.
Roar is completely framework-agnostic and loves being used in web kits like Rails, Webmachine, Sinatra, Padrino, etc. If you use Rails, consider roar-rails for an enjoyable integration.
