Quick start

  1. Install the library using pip:

    pip install django-modern-rpc
  2. Decorate the methods you want to make available via RPC calls:

# In myproject/rpc_app/
from modernrpc.core import rpc_method

def add(a, b):
    return a + b

and make sure these functions are imported at Django startup. A simple way to do this is to import them in your app’s module:

# In myproject/rpc_app/
from rpc_app.rpc_methods import add
  1. Declare an entry point, a view which will generate a correct RPC response depending on the incoming request:
# In myproject/rpc_app/
from django.conf.urls import url

from modernrpc.views import RPCEntryPoint

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^rpc/', RPCEntryPoint.as_view(), name="rpc_entry_point"),

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

>>> from xmlrpc.client import ServerProxy
>>> client = ServerProxy('')
>>> print(client.add(2, 3))
