Re: [pyatl] looking for an easy to use rest client lib

Oops, I didn't read far enough in your message to see that you didn't
like restkit because you don't know json. For that I'd recommend
simplejson (http://pypi.pytho...­). And take a look at
the railroad diagrams at http://www.json.o...­ it's a really simple spec.
If you can do python lists and dicts, you can do json.
