Filter queries to json and back
With FilterQL you can write filter queries with the use of python objects. These objects can be translated to json and send over the wire to be used in some other backend. This allows you to not be limited to the way you can define filters in (front-end) applications that communicate with and API.
Currently actively used and watched.
- python 2.7
- python 3.3, 3.4, 3.5
- (optional) django >= 1.8
pip install filterql
from filterql import L, STARTSWITH # Filter query for name to start with `spindle` or `devhouse` lookup = L('name', 'spindle', lookup=STARTSWITH) | L('name', 'devhouse', lookup=STARTSWITH) # Convert to json to be able to send it to other systems. lookup_json = lookup.dumps() # On the other side either convert back to L objects or to Django Q objects. # L l_filters = L.from_json(lookup_json) # Django from filterql.serializers import DjangoSerializer django_filters = DjangoSerializer().from_json(lookup_json)
