A simple JSON API framework based on Tornado

Project description


Build Status PyPI version Coverage Status Stories in Ready


Tornado-JSON is a small extension of Tornado with the intent providing the tools necessary to get a JSON API up and running quickly. See demos/helloworld/ for a quick example and the accompanying walkthrough in the documentation.

Some of the key features the included modules provide:

  • Input and output JSON Schema validation by decorating RequestHandlers
  • Automated route generation with routes.get_routes(package)
  • Automated Public API documentation using schemas and provided descriptions
  • Standardized output using the JSend specification

Read the Docs for documentation!

Warning: Tornado-JSON is still very much a work in progress. No guarantees on backwards-compatibility made, however, I try not to do that since, as a user, I hate breaking it at least as much as you. That being said, use it at your own risk.


Python2.7 is the only supported version (as you might suspect).

These dependencies can be satisfied by running pip install -r requirements.txt

  • tornado
  • jsonschema
