Huxley is an open source JSON ReST proxy for the UK National Rail Live Departure Board SOAP API (Darwin). It aims to make the API easier to use for developers.

SOAP is a pain to use (you have to POST specially crafted XML) so Huxley allows you to GET nicely formatted JSON instead (ReST). It also adds CORS headers so you can access it with JavaScript from a different domain.
