[chuck-users] ChucK with RESTful APIs

Hi all, 

I'm new to ChucK and looking for a little advice. I'm currently working on a "podcast" bot which will generate new sounds/episodes nightly. I currently have a Ruby script organizing everything and handling the logistics of uploading the MP3 and updating the RSS feed. It runs asynchronously on a Raspberry Pi (Cron > Ruby > Chuck).

Anyhow, I'd eventually like this little guy to be able to reach out on the web and have its sounds influenced by data it finds. So I was wondering if you all had any suggestions pulling things in from REST APIs like Twitter or news feeds or whatever. Is there a function for this in ChucK? Or would it be better to handle this stuff in Ruby and pass it to ChucK via a temporary text file or runtime arguments or something?
