Making using Django with frontend libraries and frameworks DRYer

Project description

# DRF-schema-adapter [![Build Status](](

`drf-schema-adapter` is a set of tools used to make it as straight-forward to declare an API endpoint
as it is to declare a new `ModelAdmin` in Django and export the corresponding definition to frontend
frameworks and libraries.

## Compatibility Matrix

**DRF-schema-adapter** is compatible with the following matrix

| | Py 2.7 | Py 3.4 | Py 3.5 | Py 3.6 |
| --------------- | ----------- | ----------- | ----------- | ----------- |
| **Django 1.8** | DRF 3.3-3.6 | DRF 3.3-3.6 | DRF 3.3-3.6 | DRF 3.3-3.6 |
| **Django 1.9** | DRF 3.3+ | DRF 3.3+ | DRF 3.3+ | DRF 3.3+ |
| **Django 1.10** | DRF 3.4+ | DRF 3.4+ | DRF 3.4+ | DRF 3.4+ |
| **Django 1.11** | DRF 3.4+ | DRF 3.4+ | DRF 3.4+ | DRF 3.4+ |
| **Django 2.0** | No | No | DRF 3.7+ | DRF 3.7+ |

:warning: For DRF 3.2, (Django 1.8 only), use version 0.9.56 or prior

:warning: Django-filter 2.x dropped support for Python2 and Django < 1.11,
update your requirements accordingly if this affects you

## Installation

### With pip

`pip install drf-schema-adapter`

### From source

Within the source directory:

`python install`

## Demo application

You can see a demo application running at

## Basic usage

First of all you'll need to import the default EndpointRouter in your file.

`from drf_auto_endpoint.router import router`

As well as add its urls to your `urlpatterns` in ``, the same way you would with DRF's

urlpatterns = [
url(r'^api/', include(router.urls)),

### Prototyping

The quickest way to get a working endpoint is to register a model with the router. Register accepts
an optional keyword argument for the `url` associated to that endpoint. By default the url for an
endpoint willbe `app_label/verbose_name_plural`

from drf_auto_endpoint.router import router
from my_app.models import MyModel, OtherModel

router.register(OtherModel, url='my_custom_url')

urlpatterns = [
url(r'^api/', include(router.urls)),

### Adding schema information to your `OPTIONS` calls

Django REST framework provides the ability to customize those calls thanks to
[metadata classes](

Setup DRF to use one of **DRF-schema-adapter**'s metadata classes to get schema information:


'DEFAULT_METADATA_CLASS': 'drf_auto_endpoint.metadata.AutoMetadata',

### Exporting to the frontend

First add `'export_app'` to your setting's `INSTALLED_APPS`, then run:

`./ export --adapter_name EmberAdapter samples/products`
