Implement some RESTful API with Rails

Before bid on this project, please make sure that you know Ruby on Rails and RESTful API.

This project consist in importing product data from TXT file (tab separated) to a RESTful API.

It's coded in English, but UI is localized to Portuguese (Brazil).

=== STEP 01: ===

You will implement an API for create/update product and related data. API for retrieve data already exists. We already have a Git repository with working app. You must checkout and add new API verbs. All database modeling is OK.

You have to upload images too. It's important to avoid unnecessary requests.

=== STEP 02: ===

In another project, you'll create a rake task. This task must read the TXT file and sync with the App where you created the APIs. You'll read existent products, create new ones, update the existing and disable (never hard delete) the old products.

I have it implemented with SeedFu, inserting in database. I can send you the sample code to help.

Is your job too ask me for doubts about data. Imagine you find a column in the TXT file and you don't know where to put it in the API. You need to ask me and, if necessary, create new fields.


Here's a sample existing structure of product to update:


"3": {

"id": 3,

"name": "Name of the product",

"slug": "name-of-the-product",

"description": "Product description.\r\n",

"active": true,

"situation": 0,

"featured": false,

"video": "",

"manufacture_id": 10,

"deleted": false,

"blocked_update": false,

"categories_ids": [


"id": 16,

"ancestor_ids": [





"master": {

"id": 6,

"sku": "[url removed, login to view]",

"price_cents": 1290,

"price_currency": "BRL",

"price_promotional_cents": 999,

"price_promotional_currency": "BRL",

"main": true,

"weight": "2.5",

"height": 62,

"width": 60,

"depth": 27,

"stock": 20


"image": null,

"translations": null



And here is a sample line of TXT to import:

11141 # NAME OF THE PRODUCT PC 00000429,00 0 0 94052000 15,00 0000000,00 0000000,00 000005,00 00005,40 BRAND NAME CATEGORY1 CATEGORY2 Here goes the description. 0789955878768 [url removed, login to view] 00000001,00 00000000,00 0001 CATEGORY3 0002 CATEGORY4 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000

I'm thinking about changing the TXT import to a synchronization with another system. I'll explain better, and call as

== STEP 03: ==

I have another working App, in Rails too, that must integrate with the App I specified in STEP 01. This App already imports the mentioned TXT file. I have to sync both product catalogs and I think it could be done using RESTful APIs. Every change made in App 1 will reflect on App 2, end vice versa.

I need some kind of messaging communication, and an interface where I can see sync progress/history.

Please consider a bid that cover both situations. With STEP 02 or STEP 03.
