`Pyreststore`_ is a `Python`_ implementation of a `REST`_ based storage,
a web application capable of storing bitbuckets serialized as plain text.
This is a varation of the `pastebin type`_ web applications implemented in
`Python`_ on top of `Django`_ and the associated `Django REST framework`_.

Plenty of fine pastebin applications exist, so why create yet another one ?
The answer is quite simply: because I could.
Professionally I found myself in need of an
enterprise level, internal pastebin service,
and none of the existing ones I considered did quite fit the bill.
This, in combination with a summer vacation cumming up,
made the decission to roll my own -
and dig into Django along the way - an easy decission.
So pyreststore is used to fill a very specific need we had
in our systems landscape,
and at the same time it is a personal learning experience for me.
The implementation is inspired of my starting points learning about
Django and Rest: The excelent `Django REST framwork Tutorial`_
and `Django Tutorial`_,
without those I would not have embarked on this journey.

If You consider using this code, please remember that it was implemented
specifically for the two purposes stated above.
You should carefully consider which support level You need,
adopting this code implies that You will maintain the code yourself !
If You are capable and willing to do this, please dig in - and consider
We have a single enterprise deployment of a slightly adapted version of
pyreststore, but I do not have ressources to support pyreststore in general.
If You decide to go ahead, please read the `License`_ file,
it should be wide enough to fit most purposes,
and consult the `installation`_ notes.

I sincerely hope that You have as much fun as I have had !
