The library of simple helpers to build API with Django.

Project description

The library of simple helpers to build API with Django. Not aimed at implementing REST.

Requirements: Python 2.7+ and Django 1.8+. Installation:

$ pip install djapi


Most of the library needs no configuration, but if you want to use token authentication:

INSTALLED_APPS += ['djapi.authtoken']
DJAPI_AUTH = ['djapi.authtoken.use_token']

# Or add default django auth for e.g. debugging purposes
DJAPI_AUTH = ['djapi.authtoken.use_token', 'djapi.auth.use_contribauth']


import djapi as api

posts_qs = api.queryset(Post).filter(visible=True) \
    .values_but('visible', 'modified_on')          \
    .values_add(category='category__title')        \
    .map_types(Image, lambda img: img.url)

@api.catch(Post.DoesNotExist, status=404)
def post(request, pk):
    return api.json(posts_qs.get(pk=pk))

def posts_list(request):
    return api.json(api.paginate(request, posts_qs, per_page=20))

@api.user_passes_test(lambda user: user.is_staff)
def posts_create(request, post):
    post.created_by = request.user
    return api.json(201,

posts = api.route(get=posts_list, post=posts_create)
