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 is powered by Flask, Redis, Cerberus, Events and offers support for both MongoDB and SQL backends.
The codebase is thoroughly tested under Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and PyPy.
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
All you need to bring your API online is a database, a configuration file (defaults to settings.py) and a launch script. Overall, you will find that configuring and fine-tuning your API is a very simple process.
