Usage examples

You can define common exception handler for whole project. Just put the following line to your django settings inside drf section:

  "EXCEPTION_HANDLER": "drf_common_exceptions.common_exception_handler",

Or use it just for particular view or viewset:

from drf_common_exceptions import CommonExceptionHandlerMixin

class MyView(CommonExceptionHandlerMixin, APIView):

The output will looks like for example validation error:

    "service": "",
    "error": "ValidationError",
    "detail": [
            "label": "Name",
            "field": "name",
            "messages": [
                "This is required field."

The data structure will be the same for any other errors.
