API testing in Ruby

I was after some advise as to whether anyone has had any experience writing API test automation scripts in Ruby? My previous experience is with C# and Java using Rest Assured and Rest Sharp libraries, but I was wondering if there was a similar library in Ruby which I could utilise?

We’re looking at writing the tests in Cucumber so a library which lends itself to being written easily in a gherkin style syntax would be great

I once used https://github.com/brooklynDev/airborne at a former workplace to help test an API using Ruby. It doesn’t use Gherkin syntax, but it is pretty readable if developers are going to be the ones maintaining the tests. I’m not sure if you can mix something like this with Cucumber for Ruby, though.
