Beer API - Serve any data. Compatible with Ember Data REST Adapter.

A REST web server written in Go. This program responds as expected to any (work in progress) request from Ember Data's REST Adapter. The backend does no processing, all the responsibility for the data is on the Ember application. Checkout the Ember-cli application BeerDemo to see how the server may be used. This is a also a demonstration of how easily web applications can be written using Ember Data.

EveryREST - An App Engine REST server

A minimal web server for Google App Engine. The server does not handle any of the application logic. It is an implementation of Beer API using the App Engine Datastore. My thinking is that all the logic can be handled by an Ember App using the REST Adapter. These ease of deploying this code to App Engine makes it possible to allow each user to own their instance of the server.
