Textbook Web mashups usually mash up data and services that are available on the Internet-- freely, commercially, or through other partnership agreements. The external sources that a mashup uses are known as mashup APIs.
This book shows you how to write web mashups using Ruby on Rails-- the new web application development framework. The book has seven real-world projects and each project is described in a methodical step-by-step way, showing how you can write a web mashup from the ground up.
