Utilities that make tastypie taste better.

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/paulcwatts/django-whippedcream.png?branch=master

The perfect counterpart to django-tastypie.

django-whippedcream provides a few mixins and utilities that I’ve used to make my life with tastypie easier.

Tested using django-tastypie>0.12, Django>1.7, and Python 2.7 and >3.4

Requirements

django-tastypie, of course. Also pytz if you want to use the DateTimeSerializer.

Installation

  1. Install: pip install django-whippedcream

  2. Add whippedcream to your INSTALLED_APPS.

DateTimeField

This is a simple addition to the DateTimeField that removes milliseconds from the field. This is useful if you don’t want to provide that level of accuracy, but also if your database engine doesn’t store that level of accuracy (MySQL).

from whippedcream.fields import DateTimeField

class MyResource(Resource):
    dt = DateTimeField('dt', normalize=True)

PyAccessMixin

This mixin class can be added to any resource where you may want to access a serialized (JSON) version in any of your regular python code. It basically implements this pattern:

http://django-tastypie.readthedocs.org/en/latest/cookbook.html#using-your-resource-in-regular-views

from whippedcream.mixins import PyAccessMixin

class MyResource(MyAccessMixin, Resource):
    pass

# elsewhere...
result = MyResource().obj_to_simple(request, obj)
