Python library to help building RESTful APIs

Project description

restible is a python library for creating consistent code for REST APIs across different frameworks. The main motivation was that the framework used is often dictated by requirements and I wanted to have a concise way of writing API endpoints no matter the underlying framework.


$ pip install restible



The library has a pretty good test coverage but not yet at 100%. A large part of the code is documented through docstrings but the general purpose docs are not written yet nor are any tutorials.
