Project description

DRF multiple serializer

Build Status

Extension for using multiple serializer in Django REST Framework.


Install from PyPI

pip install drf-multiple-serializer

There is no need to modify your INSTALLED_APPS setting.


Action Base

Set the serializer to serializer_classes with the viewset action.
The rest of the actions use the default serializer.

from rest_framework import viewsets
from drf_multiple_serializer import MultipleSerializerMixin

class CategoryViewSet(ActionBaseSerializerMixin,
    queryset = Category.objects.all()
    serializer_classes = {
        'default': CategorySerializer,
        'list': CategoryListSerializer,
        'retrieve': CategoryReadSerializer,

Read & Write

Set the read & write serializer to serializer_classes.
List, Retrieve actions use a read serializer,
and the other actions (include delete) use a write serializer.

from rest_framework import viewsets
from drf_multiple_serializer import ReadWriteSerializerMixin

class ItemViewSet(ReadWriteSerializerMixin,
    queryset = Item.objects.all()
    serializer_classes = {
        'read': ItemReadSerializer,
        'write': ItemWriteSerializer,
