Dirty magic to generate automated DRF endpoints

Project Description

django-lazydrf is a dirty magic applied to your models to generate automated Django Rest Framework endpoints.

Note that this is an experimental project. Use at your own risk and sadness.

TODO: Provide a complete README


pip install django-lazydrf


  1. Define a Django model as follows:

    from django.db import models
    from django.db.models import CharField
    from lazydrf.models import LDRF
    class Record(models.Model, metaclass=LDRF):
        Defines a key/value record model.
        #: Defines the key of the record.
        key = CharField(max_length=16, unique=True, blank=False, null=False)
        #: Defines the value of the record.
        value = CharField(max_length=64, blank=False, null=False, db_index=True)
        class Meta:
            Defines Django model metadata.
            app_label = "sample"
        class APIFields:
            Defines fields related API metadata.
            editable = ["key", "value"]
            ordering = ["key"]
            searching = ["key", "^value"]
        class APIFiltering:
            Defines filtering related API metadata.
            key = ["exact", "icontains", "startswith"]
            value = ["exact", "icontains", "startswith"]
        class APIViewset:
            #readonly = True
  2. Register all lazydrf models for a given Django application to the usual DRF router, like:

    from django.conf.urls import url, include
    from django.contrib import admin
    from rest_framework import routers
    from lazydrf.utils import register_app
    #: Defines the DRF router.
    Router = routers.DefaultRouter()
    ## Register model endpoints for the sample Django application:
    register_app("sample", Router)
    #: Defines URL patterns:
    urlpatterns = [
        url(r"^", include(Router.urls)),
