A Django REST framework API adapter for the App(IOS, Andorid, WebApp) API spec.

Project description

IOS&Andorid API and Django Rest Framework


App API support for Django REST Framework

By default, Django REST Framework will produce a request like:

and then the response like:

    "count": 200,
    "msg": "success!",
    "data": {
        "list": [
                "id": 3,
                "username": "john1",
                "full_name": "John Coltrane1"
                "id": 4,
                "username": "john2",
                "full_name": "John Coltrane2"
        "total_count": 2,
        "total_pages": 1


As a Django REST Framework APP API (short DJA) we are trying to address following goals:

  1. Support the REST_FRAMEWORK_APPAPI to compliance
  2. Be as compatible with Django REST Framework as possible
  3. Have sane defaults to be as easy to pick up as possible
  4. Be solid and tested with good coverage
  5. Be performant


  1. Python (3.5, 3.6, 3.7)
  2. Django (1.11, 2.1, 2.2)
  3. Django REST Framework (3.10)

We highly recommend and only officially support the latest patch release of each Python, Django and REST Framework series.
