Usage

from peace import PeaceMaker

def set_authorization_header(request):
    request.headers['Authorization'] = authorization_value
    return request

maker = PeaceMaker('http://api.example.com')
Employee = maker.make(
    'Employee',
    '/employees'
    has: {
        'user': maker.make('Company'),
    },
    intercept: set_authorization_header,
)

employees = Employee.search(last_name='Smith')
bob = Employee.get('100')
bob.last_name = 'Smith-Jones'
bob.save()
bob.refresh()
company = bob.company
print(company.name) # prints name

Peace requires the REST API to conform to a particular structure. A JSON response should look something like this:

{
  "data": {
    "id": 100,
    "first_name": "Bob",
    "last_name": "Smith",
  },
  "links": {
    "self": {"href": "/employees/100"},
    "company": {
      "href": "/companies/5",
      "data": {
        "name": "Big Corp",
      },
    },
  },
}

Links can be followed (e.g. bob.company). Initially, the data returned in the original request will be immediately available, but if you try to access other fields that a direct load is required to make available, (i.e. were not in the original response), then a load of the linked object will be done first (e.g. GET /companies/5).
