Support REST calls for asyncio+aiohttp.

Project description

JSON REST framework based on aiohttp (an asyncio (PEP 3156) http server).

Example usage

Simple REST server can be run like this:

import asyncio
import aiohttp
import aiorest

# define a simple request handler
# which accept no arguments
# and responds with json
def hello(request):
    return {'hello': 'world'}

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
server = aiorest.RESTServer(hostname='',

# configure routes
server.add_url('GET', '/hello', hello)
# create server
srv = loop.run_until_complete(loop.create_server(
    server.make_handler, '', 8080))

def query():
    resp = yield from aiohttp.request(
        'GET', '', loop=loop)
    data = yield from resp.read_and_close(decode=True)


this will print {'hello': 'world'} json

See examples for more.
