The server portion of turnsole, heliotrope, is explicitly designed to
support multiple clients and provides a JSON-over-HTTP interface for
that purpose.

The specifics of the protocol are still subject to change, but see e.g.
https://github.com/wmorgan/heliotrope/blob/master/lib/heliotrope-client.rb
for the ruby client that turnsole uses to communicate with the server.
