## Overview

Tornado-JSON is a small extension of [Tornado]( with the intent of providing the tools necessary to get a JSON API up and running quickly.

Some of the key features the included modules provide:

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

## Getting Started/FAQ

How do I use this thing?

Okay, but how do I install it?

  • For the possibly stable

` pip install Tornado-JSON `

  • For the latest and greatest

` git clone cd Tornado-JSON sudo python install `

Neat, but `x` sucks, `y` is ugly, and `z` could be better.

You completely changed the interface in a recent update; what gives?

  • But newer is so much better! Seriously though, Tornado-JSON is, at the moment, still very much a work in progress. Updates will be made that will break the existing interface (and replace it with a shiny, new, much better one). All in the name of making it better! (And progress etc.)

## Running Tests

`bash sudo pip2 install tox sudo pip3 install tox sudo tox  # Will run test matrix `
