An API microframework based on the idea of that the UI is just yet another API endpoint

Project description

Build Status

Flask-Pushrod is a simple helper for Flask for doing content negotiation (primarily for running the API and the website on the same code-base, with as little separate handling as possible).

Installation

Flask-Pushrod is available on PyPI, so to install the latest stable version simply run

pip install Flask-Pushrod

or

easy_install Flask-Pushrod

Usage

A simple hello world app in Pushrod would look like this:

from flask import Flask, render_template
from flask.ext.pushrod import Pushrod, pushrod_view

import random


app = Flask(__name__)
Pushrod(app)


@app.route("/")
@pushrod_view(jinja_template="hello.html")
def hello():
    return {
        'greeting': random.choice(("Hi", "Heya"))
    }

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.run()

This would, depending on the request, return either the greeting message in JSON or render it through the Jinja2 hello.html template.

Tests

$ python setup.py test
