Python REST API for Humans.
Eve is an open source Python REST API framework designed for human beings. It allows to effortlessly build and deploy highly customizable, fully featured RESTful Web Services. Eve offers native support for MongoDB, and SQL backends via community extensions.
Eve is Simple
from eve import Eve app = Eve() app.run()
The API is now live, ready to be consumed:
$ curl -i http://example.com/people HTTP/1.1 200 OK
