Django-modern-rpc provides a simple solution to implement a remote procedure call (RPC) server as part of your Django project. It supports all major Django and Python versions.

  • Simple and pythonic API
  • Python 2.7 & 3.4+ (Python 2 users must ensure six package is installed)
  • Django 1.8+
  • XML-RPC and JSON-RPC 2.0 support (JSON-RPC 1.0 not supported)
  • HTTP Basic Auth support
  • Custom authentication support
  • Automatic protocol detection based on request’s Content-Type header
  • High-level error management based on exceptions
  • Multiple entry points, with specific methods and protocol attached
  • RPC Methods documentation generated automatically, based on docstrings
  • System introspection methods:

Quick start

  1. Use pip to install the package in your environment:

    pip install django-modern-rpc
  2. Add it to your Django applications, in

  3. Declare an entry point, a view generating correct RPC responses to incoming requests:

    # In myproject/rpc_app/
    from django.conf.urls import url
    from modernrpc.views import RPCEntryPoint
    urlpatterns = [
        url(r'^rpc/', RPCEntryPoint.as_view()),
  4. Use @rpc_method to register a global function in django-modern-rpc registry:

    # In myproject/rpc_app/
    from modernrpc.core import rpc_method
    def add(a, b):
        return a + b
  5. Declare the list of python modules containing your RPC methods, in


Now, you can call the method add from a client:

>>> from xmlrpc.client import ServerProxy
>>> client = ServerProxy('http://localhost:8000/rpc/')
>>> print(client.add(2, 3))
