CORS support for API Star via event hooks.

Project description

This project enables CORS on API Star apps via event hooks.


  • apistar>=0.4.0
  • python>=3.6


Install via PyPI:

pip install apistar_cors_hooks

After installing, we need to add and instance of CORSRequestHooks to your event_hooks in your app:

from apistar import App, Route
from apistar_cors_hooks import CORSRequestHooks

def homepage() -> str:
    return '<html><body><h1>Homepage</h1></body></html>'

routes = [
    Route('/', method='GET', handler=homepage),

event_hooks = [CORSRequestHooks()]
app = App(routes=routes, event_hooks=event_hooks)

If you want to customize WSGICORS options, you just need to pass a dict via the options kwarg:

custom_options = {"origin": "your_host_server"}
event_hooks = [CORSRequestHooks(options=custom_options)]
app = App(routes=routes, event_hooks=event_hooks)


Since I’m a WSGI/CORS noob, I may have left a bug or two, or didn’t think of better ways to implement this.
