A Twisted Web REST micro-framework

Project description

Based on Flask API, with integrated multiprocessing support for full usage of all CPUs. Provides a more Flask/Sinatra-style API on top of the core twisted.web APIs. Integrates FormEncode for path, form and query argument validation.

The simplest possible twisted.web CorePost REST application:

from corepost.web import CorePost, route
from corepost.enums import Http

class RestApp(CorePost):

    def root(self,request,**kwargs):
        return request.path

    def test(self,request,**kwargs):
        return request.path

    def test_get_resources(self,request,numericid,**kwargs):
        return "%s" % numericid

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = RestApp()


  • 0.0.10:

    • routing by incoming content type

    • automatic response conversion based on caller’s Accept header (JSON/YAML
