Ripozo is a tool for building RESTful/HATEOAS/Hypermedia apis. It provides
strong, simple, and fully qualified linking between resources, the ability to expose
available actions and necessary parameters on a resource, and exposing
multiple REST protocols (i.e. SIREN and HAL). Finally, ripozo is highly extensible.
It is able to integrate with any web framework or database and you can easily roll out
your own REST protocols.

Why use ripozo?

- Strong support for inter-resource linking (HATEOAS/Hypermedia)
- Flexible (can be used with any web framework, database, or response protocol)
- Fast development (especially when using the extensions, such as flask-ripozo or django-ripozo)
- Ability to expose actions on resource from the web api (self-discoverability)


You'll need to create a dispatcher using one of the dispatchers included
in the framework extensions. You can find a list of framework extensions in
`The ripozo ecosystem`_ section. If it's not there you can always roll out your own.


.. code-block:: python

from ripozo import apimethod, adapters, ResourceBase
# import the dispatcher class for your preferred webframework

class MyResource(ResourceBase):
def say_hello(cls, request):
return cls(properties=dict(hello='world'))

# initialize the dispatcher for your framework
# e.g. dispatcher = FlaskDispatcher(app)
dispatcher.register_adapters(adapters.SirenAdapter, adapters.HalAdapter)

And just like that, you have an api that can return either Siren or Hal
formatted responses. Pretty easy, right?


On the other hand, if you wanted a full CRUD+L (Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete, and List),
you could use one of the manager extensions (django-ripozo, ripozo-sqlalchemy, and ripozo-cassandra all
include ready to use base managers). There are slight differences
on creating Manager classes and instances in the different extensions but at a core they all follow this

.. code-block:: python

from ripozo import restmixins
from fake_ripozo_extension import Manager
from myapp.models import MyModel # An ORM model for example a sqlalchemy or Django model.

class MyManager(Manager):
fields = ('id', 'field1', 'field2',)
model = MyModel

class MyResource(restmixins.CRUDL):
manager = MyManager()
pks = ('id',)

# Create your dispatcher and register the resource...

It is important to not that there are restmixins for each of
the individual CRUD+L (i.e. restmixins.Create, restmixins.Retrieve, etc.)
actions that can be mixed and matched to your pleasure.


The coolest part of ripozo is the ability to easily create fully qualified links between

.. code-block:: python

from ripozo import restmixins, Relationship

class MyResource(restmixins.CRUDL):
manager = MyManager()
pks = ('id',)
_relationships = [Relationship('related', relation='RelatedResource')]

class RelatedResource(restmixins.CRUDL)
manager = RelatedManager()
pks = ('id',)

Now whenever you request MyResource you'll get a link pointing to
the related resource.

The ripozo ecosystem

Currently, ripozo has integrations with Django, Flask, SQLAlchemy,
and Cassandra (via cqlengine). The documentation links are provided

.. code-block:: bash

pip install ripozo


Prior to version 1.0.0 ripozo versioning follows `sentimental
versioning <>`_. Releases after 1.0.0 ollow
a standard *major.minor.patch* style.

- patch: forwards and backwards compatible
- minor: backwards compatible
- major: No guarantees


Want to help out? We'd love it! Github will be the hub of development for ripozo.
If you have any issues, comments, or complaints post them there. Additionally, we
are definitely accepting pull requests (hint: we almost always love more tests and
documentation). We do have just a few requests:

* Every method, function, and class should have a thorough docstring
* There should be at least one unit test for each function and method
* Keep your pull requests to one issue. (Preferably open an issue on github first for record keeping)
