Handles JSONRPC and XMLRPC requests easily with Django

Project description

Prerequisites

RPC4Django has been tested on Mac OS, Linux and Windows.

Installation

RPC4Django can be installed with pip, easy_install or from source:

tar xvfz rpc4django-x.y.z.tar.gz
cd rpc4django-x.y.z
python setup.py install

Alternatively, RPC4Django can be used from your Django project without installing it.

tar xvfz rpc4django-x.y.z.tar.gz
cd rpc4django-x.y.z
cp -r rpc4django YOUR_DJANGO_PROJECT_DIRECTORY

Configuration

  1. First, you need to add new url pattern to your root urls.py file. You can replace r'^RPC2$' with anything you like.

    # urls.py
    
    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        # rpc4django will need to be in your Python path
        (r'^RPC2$', 'rpc4django.views.serve_rpc_request'),
    )
    
  2. Second, add RPC4Django to the list of installed applications in your settings.py.

    # settings.py
    
    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        'rpc4django',
    )
    
  3. Lastly, you need to let RPC4Django know which methods to make available. RPC4Django recursively imports all the apps in INSTALLED_APPS and makes any methods importable via __init__.py with the @rpcmethod decorator available as RPC methods. You can always write your RPC methods in another module and simply import it in __init__.py.

    # testapp/__init__.py
    from rpc4django import rpcmethod
    
    # The doc string supports reST if docutils is installed
    @rpcmethod(name='mynamespace.add', signature=['int', 'int', 'int'])
    def add(a, b):
        '''Adds two numbers together
        >>> add(1, 2)
        3
        '''
    
        return a+b
