plone.restapi is a RESTful hypermedia API for Plone.

Project description Code Health


plone.restapi is a RESTful hypermedia API for Plone.


Getting started

A live demo of Plone 5 with the latest plone.restapi release is available at:

Example GET request on the portal root:

$ curl -i -H "Accept: application/json"

Example POST request to create a new document:

$ curl -i -X POST -H "Accept: application/json" -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data-raw '{"@type": "Document", "title": "My Document"}' --user admin:admin


Install plone.restapi by adding it to your buildout:



eggs =

and then running bin/buildout



plone.restapi is used in production since the first alpha release. It can be seen in action at the following sites:

  • Add ‘addable’ attribute to the @types endpoint. It specifies if the content type can be added to the current context. See [jaroel]
