The Flask extension for py-jsonapi

Project Description

This extension connects your Flask application with py-jsonapi.


You can install this extension via PyPi:

$ pip3 install py-jsonapi-flask

How to

You can use py-jsonapi-flask like every other Flask extension:

from flask import Flask
from jsonapi_flask.api import API

app = Flask(__name__)
api = API("/api", flask_app=app)

You can also register the extension later via init_app():


In these examples, the API will take control over all urls starting with /api/.


You can access the current API via the extensions dictionary of the flask application:


or you use the global variable current_api:

from jsonapi_flask.api import current_api

The API instance is also added to the jinja environment:

    You can download your profile
    <a href="{{ jsonapi.resource_uri(current_user) }}">


You can also access the current py-jsonapi request object:

from jsonapi_flask.api import current_request

The request is also added to the jinja environment under the name jsonapi_request.
