flask api toolset

Project description


PyPI version

flask API toolset

pip install flask-api-spec

started with a simple idea


  • write validation codes for requests
  • write validation and serialization codes for responses
  • write API body
  • integrate authorizations then protect the APIs
  • swaggerize all of them automatically
  • with Flask



import flask_api_spec

app = Flask(__name__)


from flask_api_spec import Value

@app.route('/hello', apispec=dict(
    query=dict(  # constraints for request.args
        id=Value(int, error='There is not id or id is not int.')
def hello_id():
    return dict(result='The id is %s' % request.args['id'])

Focus on what begins with apispec=. We've got a robust feature for the API using the extended app.route with the apispec keyword argument.

from flask_api_spec import Value

@app.route('/hello/<string:name>', apispec=dict(
    param=dict(  # constraints for parameters
        name=Value(str, lambda x: len(x) > 3, error='name is no string or the length is not greater than 3')
def hello_name(name):
    return dict(result='Hello %s!' % name)

A param keyword in apispec= indicates in-path parameters. We can state some more detailed rules about them explicitly. In the case above, size of <string:name> should exceed 3.
