        Review ofRecurlyRecurly

        Overall I've enjoyed working with Recurly, however, their XML only API response produced some headaches/delays in a Node-based (Meteor) project. Conversion of the XML worked, but the way responses were formed wasn't always consistent (e.g. for error handling) resulting in a lot of extra work.

        The product is pretty good, but this XML issue along with improved API documentation would make it great.
