A python library that implements a thrift parser into Django to use it's models and controllers to implement RPC/HTTP services.
Manifold is a Django application designed by ACV Auctions that allows for easy creation and serving of an RPC server through a WSGI interface using Gunicorn Thrift and Thriftpy. Manifold uses Apache Thrift to standardize message transmission.
It allows the Django project to define Thrift file locations and services in the settings file. This then gives the power to define Python functions to handle RPC calls, load the Thrift files in memory as a Python module, serve an RPC WSGI server in both development and production, and serve a HTTP wrapper around our RPC functions for frameworks and languages that don’t have RPC support.
For an introduction and in-depth description of Thrift, we recommend following Thrift: The Missing Guide.
