I'd use Nose and wsgi_intercept.

I don't think Selenium is appropriate for testing a REST API (nor is
Windmill).  wsgi_intercept can help you test WSGI apps in process.
Use Twill if you need a simulated browser, which it sounds like you

One of these days, I want to try out:


They're replacements for Cucumber in Ruby.  However, in the interest
of keeping it simple, I say go with Nose and wsgi_intercept.

Happy Hacking!
