Allows for automatic serialization of Djongo fields w/ Django REST

Project description


A package which enables serialization of Djongo fields with django-rest-framework's (DRF) serializers and viewsets


NOTE: This repo is currently under development, and most (if not all) of its features are likely to throw errors or behave in unexpected ways; use at your own risk

Similiar to DRF ModelSerializers, creating serializers using DjongoModelSerializer allows for the following fields to be detected and managed through DRF's serializer setup. These fields include Djongo's:

  • ObjectIDField
  • EmbeddedModelField (both as a standalone field and as a custom built serializer)
  • ArrayModelField
  • ArrayReferenceField


  1. Install rest-meets-djongo:
    pip install rest_meets_djongo
  2. Into file of your project, add:
  3. Replace REST's 'ModelSerializer' with 'DjongoModelSerializer' and enjoy the automation of EmbeddedModels and ObjectID fields!


(Earlier version testing is currently being testing; these are just the confirmed functional versions)

  1. Python 3.6 or higher
  2. MongoDB 4.0 or higher
  3. djangorestframework 3.9 or higher
  4. djongo 1.2 or higher
