The guys from are working on a OpenCPU wrapper Gem. This simple API client provides a pretty nice basis for building R web applications with Ruby. A minimal example from the readme:

client.execute :digest, :hmac, { key: 'foo', object: 'bar', algo: 'md5' }
# => ['0c7a250281315ab863549f66cd8a3a53']

Which performs the following JSON RPC request:

digest::hmac(key="foo", object="bar", algo="md5")
