Enables Django REST Framework support for Ember Data's JSON API implementation.

Project description

Enables Django REST Framework support for Ember Data’s JSON API implementation.

JSON API feature support

Presently, drf-ember supports a majority - but not all - of the JSON API specifications features and extensions.


These features are supported.

  • Generation of JSON API document structure
  • The core functionality for retrieval, creation, updating, and deletion of resources
  • The included top-level member is supported by parsing nested serializer fields. See the Getting Started guide in the documentation.
  • Error objects
  • The bulk extension for creation and updating of resource lists

Not supported

These features are not supported.

  • links objects are not generated
  • Fetching relationship data for every relationship URL provided as a self link as part of a relationship’s links object.
  • Endpoints can’t presently support an include request parameter which allows the client to customize which related resources should be returned. Presently, drf-ember will return a blank 400 if the include request parameter is present.
  • Sparse fieldsets
  • Sort fields through query parameters
  • Updating relationships at URLs from relationship links


Python 3. Python 2 is not supported and there is no plan to support it.
